“The Wayward Knight” Blackened Klappvisor Bascinet

XIV century helmet with visor

The Wayward Knight doesn’t fear what he’ll encounter in the future, much like how he doesn’t dwell on the mistakes of this past… they are all things he carries with him, as he roams lordless, without a tether - free. 

This bascinet matches our recently released “Wayward Knight” collection, a new functional armor kit that looks fearsome and fantastic at the same time. Though it was created to be worn with the whole blackened set, we feel that this helmet would look fantastic with any other armor set as well.

This bascinet is a very common for helmets found in the XIV century, as well as early in the XV. The klappvisor aspect of it was signature to the late XIV/ early XV century, and is often referred to as Central European. This specific klappvisor is based on Swiss finds, which you can see in the hook at the bottom of the visor, which sets it apart from our German helmet. A klappvisor usually (as with this one) connects to the rest of the helmet via a hinge near the forehead area, and include a leather strap to hold it in place while you fight. The visor is easily removable and can be replaced with another option, such as one of our SCA bargrills.

The Wayward Knight collection is the first full suit of armor that we have created with a new technology - chemical blackening - in mind. The blackening gives the steel a rich, dark tone, which looks amazing in any light and gives the armor an interesting twist we haven’t used before. Keep in mind that the blackened finish can only be achieved on mild steel, so this helmet may attract some surface rust if not taken care of. The blackening does, however, protect the helmet to some degree from deep, structural rust. If you are looking for something a little bit more weathered, we can also add additional “snakeskin” hammered weathering, which is great for LARP. If you’re not interested in the blackened finish, we can also produce this helmet in mild steel with either a mirror or satin finish as well as stainless steel with the same finishes.

This helmet is made from 2mm steel. It comes pre-padded and ready for combat, so you’re ready to fight as soon as it arrives! All of our helmets also come with leather chin straps. It is constructed from quality materials, with solid brass rivets, robust leather and a beautiful blackened mild steel riveted aventail. The visor is trimmed with blackened brass to match the rest of the set, which is a beautiful finishing touch.

    Hello, I was wondering if it would be possible to make some alterations to the shape of the helmet and aventail, as well as reducing the amount of padding (I don't need it to be SCA legal) Regards, William

    Where does one find the cloth ring for the helmet? Does it come with the helmet yea or nah?

    ArmStreet Team answered 07 of September 2018:

    Hi Nathaniel! It can be made upon request.

  • Tristan 24 of August 2018:

    This is SCA legal, correct? As I see that there is nothing that would prevent it from being so.

    Hi Tristan! Stainless steel version of this helmet is SCA legal
