The Pigface Bascinet helmet or Hounskull (from the German "Hound's Hood") was a popular helmet from the 14th Century as was worn by both English and French knights at famous battles such as Crecy (1346) and Poitiers (1356). A depiction of this style of bascinet can be seen on the monumental brass of Sir Hugh Hastings in St Mary's Church in Elsing, Norfolk.

It features brass 'vervailles' for attaching a chainmail 'aventail' (not included) and an adjustable leather spider liner and buckled chin strap. 18 gauge steel construction - not recommended for re-enactment.
