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.
This Pigface Bascinet replica is hand crafted in polished steel and brass and has a removable pivoting visor like the original. 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.
