Visored Barbuta Helmet
Combat Barbuta with Visor
The visored barbuta helmet is one of the most controversial armor pieces and always causes a lot of debates. As far as we know, only two pieces of this type are available in museums, and most researchers and reenactors consider them to be a regular open-face barbuta, dated circa mid. XV century, upgraded later with the visor.
The visored helmet can be used for most types of combat, including heavy formats and jousting. With the visor up the helmet reminds historically looking barbuta. So, with its very aggressive, fantasy looking design, this helmet is a universal armor for many things, such as HMB, jousting, and LARP.
Functionally, our visored barbuta goes in a variety of steel thicknesses and can be mirror- or satin-polished, it's also supplied with a pin-lock to meet up heavy fighting formats and some other formats requirements.

Richard Lange 30 of December 2022:
Marvelous craftsmanship, and fit and finish! The helmet lining and padding are very comfortable, and fit well. I do wish the visor were removable, rather than just raise up. Their customer service is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Armstreet, not only for this helmet, but other items as well!

How is the visor removable? It looks like it is peen riveted to the helmet base
Hi Mitchell, yes it is riveted on the pictures, but we can make it removable upon request.
Is it possible to request a version for LARP where the eye slit is bigger and there are the same number of venting holes on both sides?
Hi Mara, yes it is possible. Please simply select custom size option for the helmet and leave this request in the comment section at the checkout.
Is it possible to have this etched to match your paladin armour kit?
Hi Michael, yes it is possible. Please contact our support team for the price.
Is it possible to get a 12ga version with a grated fencing shield on the eyes for legal thrusting in HEMA?
Hi Daniel, yes we can make it in 12 ga steel. We can add eye protection on the eyeslits but we will need the exact measurements and requirements for it.
Does this come with the liner or do I have to purchase that separately? And how should I measure my head to allow for the dense padding if I don't have anything like that yet?
Hi Jared, padding is included. Please simply send us your head circumference measured along eyebrows.
Would it be possible to change the shape of the eye-slits on the helmet, and if so, how much more would such an alteration cost? Thanks in advance.
Dear Graeme, yes it is possible. Kindly contact our support team with the picture of the visor you would like to have so we could calculate the price for customization.
Would it be possible to get this visor on a bascinet? Thanks!
Yes, it can be possible, please contact us at email@example.com to order.
Hi, is it possible to get this without the visor and visor pin? If so, how much cheaper would this be?
Dear Hugh, yes it is possible. Please contact our support team for the price.
Could it be possible to make some major modifications to the helmet design? I really like the general design, but am turned off by a couple of the features. I'd like to to look more like this if possible.
It could be possible, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more info.
Can this be acid etched to match your paladin line?
Hi James, yes it is possible. Please contact our support team for the price.
Is there a version of this without the visor? If not, is it possible to remove the piece that the visor attaches to? I like the shape of the helmet, but don't want a visor, and the hinge would spoil the look
Hi Nathanael, sure, we can make it without the visor and hinge for you.
Would it be possible to customize it to for consumers with glasses?
According to the SCA rules, ordinary glass lenses are prohibited. We recommend replacing them with contact lenses, or wearing motorcycle goggles over the glasses. Then measure your head 1. as usual, along the eyebrows and 2. along the most exposed points of the goggles. Also please mention this detail in the comments to your order and we`ll
make the helmet considering that you`ll be wearing glasses.
Could you guys do the acid etching on the visor portion of this helm ? Also can you do custom acid etching ?
For custom etching, please contact us at email@example.com.
Firstly ... The model on your pictures is it the "mirror polish" or "satin polish" ? Secondly ... is it the stainless version or not, and if it is, the "mirror / satin polish" choice is it still to do ? Finally ... the stainless version is it 2mm thickness (12 gauge) steel as the classic version, and is it as solid and sturdy ?
The helmet from photos has mirror polish.
Stainless helmet can be mirror or satin polished as well.
Can be made of 14 ga (2 mm) steel, which is sturdy and reliable; we don't use 12 ga (2.5 mm) steel, sorry.
Would it be possible to have the chinstrap strap on the chin, keeping the helmet in place? ALSO, would it be possible to have a strap attached to the visor, going around the back of the helmet to keep the visor in place for SCA legal combat?
Chin strap is included.
Visor strap around helmet - extra $15.
Damn this is an awesome helmet, but the price.. THE PRICE!!
It's really awesome helm!
Can you make this helm blackened or blued? Or is it satin or polished only? Thanks.
To date we don't make blackening and blueing.
hi, do you sell the visor to this helmet separate?? if so how much for sending it to england
Technically this is possible, but we can't guarantee that the visor which is made remotely will work with your helmet.
