15th Century Sallet and Bevor “The Kingmaker”
A mid-15th century inspired combination with style
There is no helmet more quintessentially “15th Century” than the sallet – footmen and knights alike donned these fantastic pieces of equipment as they marched to war together. Often, these helmets would be combined with neck and face protection known as the “bevor”, which could be worn in a variety of different ways to both protect the user and increase comfort. Our sallet and bevor combination work effortlessly together – although they are two different pieces, when worn together they seem to function as one! The bevor itself consists of three parts which are all delightfully articulated, providing you with as much protection as possible. It also includes a small modern convenience: an easy to use locking pin mechanism which allows you to wear it up to protect your mouth and nose or down to allow some extra breathing room. When worn with our sallet, you’re completed protected from the neck up, with a single horizontal slit in the sallet providing decent visibility.
The Kingmaker isn’t just any helmet. This work of art combines historical beauty with our fourteen years of manufacturing expertise to create a magnificent helmet fit for a noble. We took the simplicity of the sallet shape and added small details to make a helmet befitting a champion. 2mm stainless steel construction makes this a formidable option for combat, while the modern convenience of a locking pin blends in well with the aesthetic whilst giving you the option to safely keep the visor raised.
As with the rest of our Kingmaker set, both items are adorned with stainless steel roping and an intricate brass border, held on by robust brass rivets. A historically inspired cast brass flower rivet decorates the side of this helmet, having the functional role of attaching the visor as well as adding to the overall beauty.
This helmet comes pre-padded and ready for battle, so please keep that in mind when taking measurements.
