This early bascinet is one of two helmets which match our “Knight of Fortune” kit. It is based on early open-faced bascinet design and is adjusted with some extra elements to make it combat-legal. Your face is protected with facial plate up to eyeslits and with wide nasal plate.
This helmet will stand in good stead as a training or combat gear. It has no movable parts so its construction is pretty sturdy while authentic and unusual look will make you recognizable in the ocean of klappvisors and spangen helmets.

How much would it take off if the etching was to be removed?
Hi Tristan, we can make 5% discount additionally for this particular helmet withour etching.
Is this helmet based on any historical examples? If so, what general time period?
Hello, Graeme! This helmet is based on the open-faced bascinet first recorded in the Italian city of Padua in 1281. A bascinet with a type of detachable nasal (nose protector) appeared in Germany around 1330.
Can the aventail be longer so it doesn't bunch up at the back of the helmet and could you also add padding under the aventail
Hi Joffrey, yes we can make aventail longer for $80 extra and we can make SCA protection under the aventail (no extra cost).
For the Knight of Fortune Helm Whats the size of gaps for the Eye slots? Im looking for no more the 3/4 inch gaps. If at all possible if the gaps are larger, can the helm be modded for this? And can it come in some form of celtic etching rather then the floral?
We can modify the slots to face the requirement, just add it to the comment to your order.
It should be possible to make the Celtic etching, but please note, custom etching may take significant time and be comparatively pricey. If you are interested in this project, we can send the request to our designer and then we`ll be able to tell you the cost and time frames.
This is my favorite looking helmet by far. The aesthetics are phenomenal, especially when viewed from the side! The two questions that I have concerning it are, does the helmet have a chinstrap and is it possible for the chain aventail to be extended? It doesn't need to be extended by much, just to about the length of a coif. Thanks!
Hi Brian, yes the helmet has a chainstrap and the aventail can be made longer for $80 extra.
