Gothic Sallet Helmet

Sallet with a movable visor, 15th century

There are three main distinctive features of this knight's helmet: a segmented neck guard, a longitudinal stiffening rib that looks like a comb, and a movable half visor. The elongated neck guard consists of four plates; its tapered shape pointed at the end was inherent to German Gothic sallet helmets. The lower edge of the eye slot slightly protrudes when the visor is down, protecting the eyes from the impact. The visor can be fixed when closed with a spring lock. Both the neck guard and the visor feature rolled and ridged bottom edges.

To protect the neck and jaw sallets were worn with a bevor or a gorget attached to a cuirass. Their advantage is the ability to tilt and turn the head, while the neck guard and the bevor perfectly protect the neck and lower face, without hindering the breath.

We've made this gothic sallet out of 14 gauge stainless steel. It's cold forged so holds very well, features quality dishing and fine borders finishing.

Sallet was popular among all medieval combatants, the only difference was the knights preferred visored version, while infantrymen had open faced helmets.

  • Colter Hulse 10 of March 2017:

    Does the Medieval Sallet Functional Armor Helmet come with a leather harness on the inside, or would we have to provide our own padding? I am very interested in this helmet, but I am not certain on this.

    ArmStreet team:

    The sallet comes with padding like all of our helmets, but it is not a leather harness. You can see how padding looks like in the photos attached.

     

  • Justin Thyme 19 of April 2016:

    The sallet is incomplete without the gorget. Do you include the gorget with the helm?

    ArmStreet team:

    The gorget is not included, this listing is for the helmet only.

  • David Greeley 28 of August 2011:
