Bascinet Houndskull with onion top

Tell about this item to your friends:

 The houndskull was a form of bascinet with a visor covering the entire face. It is the visor which gives the helmet its name, as this resembles the face of a dog ("hound" or, in German, "Hund"), with a protruding muzzle in order to better protect the face from blows and to grant greater ventilation (which was largely afforded the wearer, when the visor was down, through holes in the "muzzle," such holes being either on the right side of the "muzzle" with additional holes near the mouth, but could also be on both sides). This model goes with liner and leather strap for avantaille.     Hand-crafted from 14ga mild steel     Painted inside     Polished     Padded-liner included     Hand made steel buckles     High quality leather straps     Bronze cast vervelles     Belt lock for visor to avoid opening during the battle     Eyeslots are less than 1" Producing time: up to 2 months Shipping time: 10-15 working days
