Bascinet Helmet

Bascinet Helmet

The "bacinetto" was a type of helmet of Italian origin used in medieval Europe (14th century). It is distinguished by the pointed shape, slightly tilted back, of the tile. Unlike the cervelliera, his archetype, the pelvis was equipped with a camaglio attached to the tile and not to be worn under the helmet. Thanks to the massive diffusion, the artifact was enriched with additional parts for the protection of the face: first nasal and then armored visors. At the beginning of the 15th century, it was reinforced by replacing the camaglio with a metal plate ruff.

Compared to the usual model of the pelvis helmet, the visor with two lateral pins was mounted on two hinges placed on each side of the helmet, with the spherical (hemispherical) visor that facilitated breathing.

The Bascinet Helmet was the most commonly used type of helmet during the Hundred Years War. It was supplanted in the fifteenth century by the celata and the bigoncia.

The Bascinet Helmet appears in Italy at the turn of the thirteenth century. The word "bazineto" appears in a Paduan document dated 1281 to describe a type of helmet used by the city infantry. It was originally an evolution of the brain, from which it is distinguished by the pointed tile, which was quickly used to replace the too bulky large helmet. At the base of the evolution there was, perhaps, the influence on the work of the Italian armorari of oriental helmet models: Byzantine or Turkish.

a metal tile with a pointed top facing backwards, descending on the cheeks and nape of the wearer. By means of a row of small holes on the edges, an internal padding was fixed to the tile, in order to make the object not only more comfortable, but also more suitable for absorbing the impacts inflicted on it.

For maximum comfort, the helmet is equipped with an inner lining (padded leather padding) and chin strap (chin strap).

This medieval helmet is ideal for combat but also for medieval reenactment parades.

On request it is possible to have the medieval stainless steel tank with a supplement.
