Bascinet “Knight of Fortune”

Italian bascinet helm with 2 visors

Most of you had hard times trying to choose helmet which provides successful combination of period design and good functionality for havy fighitng formats  or live-steel tournament. No more compromises! It took a while to design a perfect pattern for laser-cut visor which looks cool with the rest of the armor, provides perfect visibility and protection while meeting any possible combat format requirement.

So, this helmet is actually based on Italian Long face bascinet and one of two visors available is actually the period one, though decorated with etched ornament (can be made without it as a custom order). Second visor, as you can see, has matching pattern but it's laser-cut of 5 mm (4/10'') stainless steel. It provides great visibility, breathing comfort and reliable protection.

Choose one of the four laser-cut visors to complete your order.

  • Emily 19 of September 2018:

    What is the weight of the 16g helmet including aventail? Do you have the option for a stainless aventail?

    ArmStreet Team answered 20 of September 2018:

    Hi Emily! The weight is about 7 kg. We can make butted stainless steel aventail. Riveted aventail can be made in mild steel only. 

  • Liam 07 of March 2017:

    Is it possible to send you a design to be used as the laser cut visor?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    In theory that is possible, but please note that it will influence production time and helmet cost as well. Please send me some sketches of the design you`d like to get and we'll check with our chief armourer if we can accept custom order like this now.

  • Jeff 11 of January 2017:

    How much for just the laser cut visor? I already have the Italian helmet and like the laser cut visor.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The laser cut visor can be made separately for $200.00 + shipping, the only problem is that we cannot guarantee the fit if we don`t have the helmet here.

  • Cuda 10 of January 2017:

    Can I purchase a laser cut face plate from you either this one or maybe something custom.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    The laser cut visor can be made separately for $200.00 + shipping, the only problem is that we cannot guarantee the fitting if the visor is made remotely from the helmet you`re gonna use it with.

  • Destiny 15 of December 2016:

    So, both visors come with it for the $799? Gods, I wish I had the money for this. Soon, desi... soon... Also, am I seeing an aventail that goes across the face behind the faceplate? I fight with live steel, and that would be a big plus considering safety and all the holes in the later-cut visor.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Yes, both visors are included into the price and there is an aventail which covers part of the face as well.
    As for the price, we could actually split the payment, let`s say, you pay half now and half once the helmet is ready. Let us know, if that`s an option and we`ll send you a PayPal invoice
    for the first payment (PayPal account is not necessary needed, you can pay with your credit card).

  • Paul Clark 22 of August 2016:

    Hi, is this helmet the same shape as the stainless steel Italian long face bascinet? Thanks Paul.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Yes, these helmets have the same shape.

  • Ian 02 of July 2016:

    Some time ago I ordered one of your "German style XIV century" bascinets. I love it, but i'm curious: 1) would the laser cut faceplate from this helmet fit on that one? and 2) if so: is there a way for me to purchase just the laser cut faceplate so i may swp it out with the one one that came with my helmet? I love the bascinet, but visibility has proven an issue in larger field fights.

    ArmStreet team answered :

    Perhaps it's possible, please email us the link to the bascinet you have or a picture of it, and we'll check this with our armorer.

  • Thomas 21 of December 2015:

    Hello, how much will the helmet cost without etching and without the Laser-cut visor ?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    This helmet without etching and laser-cut visor costs $629 + $74 shipping = $703.00 totally. If this works for you, we can send an invoice for the order directly to your PayPal email.

  • Marita 08 of December 2015:

    Hello, a while back I ordered a set of legs (Medieval Full Leg Armor Set: Poleyn, Greaves, Thigh Plates) from you. I have not yet used them for combat and i was wondering it it would be possible to send you the greaves of the set and have you do that beautiful etching seen in your newest collection?

    ArmStreet team answered :

    For technical reasons etching cannot be applied to the finished product, sorry.

  • Dirk Fucik 08 of December 2015:

    I love the new helmet but was curious how much it was without the etching?
