Description

Create a suit of armour befitting a German knight from the 15th century by including the Gothic Sallet Helmet. The descendent of the Italian bascinet, this war helmet became the preferred choice of armour for over a hundred years. Inspired by the classic gothic style, the sallet features fluting and ridge work that enhances the look and strength of the armour. A rounded top with raised centerline further increases the defensive power. The bellows visor swivels up and down for easy adjustment, and possesses cutouts for ventilation. Metal lames form a lobster neck-plate in the back. Foam padding lines the interior, while an adjustable buckle strap secures the helmet at the chin. A polished steel finish creates the knight in shining armour look.

    A great price for a great helm. Comfortable right out of the box (after wiping off the oil). I gave it 4 stars on quality because the rivets are not of the best caliber, but a little work on my part and it finished up beautifully.

    This Sallet is fantastic! It fits perfectly, has a great look, and is a great price! The visor snaps into the closed position via two studs giving it a sturdy, and reliable feel. I absolutely love it. My order also arrived very quickly witch is a plus for sure! For the money you would be hard pressed to find a better helmet!

    Amazing look and feel. Unfortunately it will not work with Epic Armoury’s bevor (I can still wear it with my kettle helm but really wish they’d make a bevor compatible for this helm. Visor ends around the chin, so you’ll need some kind of neck covering. I love the articulation of the lobster tail back. If the visor feels a bit loose or doesn’t stay up, I recommend getting a pair of pliers and a wrench and tighten up the visor bolts a bit. I had this problem but after a bit of tightening, managed to get a snug but smooth fitting visor.
