Cabasset Helmet “Hound of War”

Early cabasset with brims, 15th c.

In addition to bascinet, several new types of helmets emerged and spread throughout Europe during the Hundred Years' War. Closed and open sallets, knight's armets - they were difficult to manufacture and expensive, moreover, they didn't provide clear vision. Over time, they gave way to the helmets with brims, developing the concept of the 'iron hat' that should be affordable to most soldiers. With the development of weapons, helmet design changed, introducing completely new types of helmets - cabasset and morion.

The first one can be distinguished by its laterally flattened dome and small slanted brims. Deep dome features a slight medial crest. Elevated crown of round shape helps to better deflect blows from the top. Equipped with all one might need off to fight in the medieval battles: reliable structure thanks to 2 mm stainless steel, comes complete with the leather chin strap and authentic inner padding. Besides the flawless shape perfectly adapted to reflect the impacts, it's decorated with turnover engrailed edging and brass rivets.

Cabasset helmet - also called spanish morion in England - was used by cavalry at first, later becoming an utter helmet of the foot soldiers. Nice and elegantly proportioned helmet for archers, halberdiers, pikemen.

Please note, it's intended to be worn with the bevor, which isn't included and might be ordered separately.

    Do you have video anywhere of this helmet with the bevor all the way up? I'm thinking of using it for Sca.

    ArmStreet Team:

    The second picture of the listing shows this helmet with the bevor all the way up. We do not have a video, sorry. 

  • Tristan 16 of August 2018:

    Would it be possible to add a SCA bargrill to this helm so its legal.

    Hi Tristan, it is not possible for this helmet, unfortunately. 

  • Corey Reynolds 20 of February 2018:

    I know this might be a common question concerning gear, but does it fit Battle of Nations rules?

    Can you do 2.5mm stainless for the cabasset?

    The helmet can be upgraded to 2.5 mm stainless steel for $120.00 extra.
    If that works for you, you can place an order via the website and we`ll send you a PayPal invoice for the extra.

    The craftsmanship and materials are good, and the manufacture time can’t be beat, but the attention to detail leaves something to be desired. The brim and bottom edge of the skull on mine are pretty squared off compared to the pictures. I would have gladly paid more if it meant the helmet was a more refined piece. I think Armstreet needs to revisit their sheet metal templates.

Please wait...
