Just look at the cool new sallet we've made for you!

This is a copy of a sallet made by the Austrian master-gunsmith Caspar Rieder. The original dates back to 1480 and you can see it in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Earlier it was in the ancestral armory of the Counts Trapp at Churburg Castle, South Tyrol.


The only difference is that Caspar Rieder forged his sallet from a single piece of metal while we welded two parts of the dome together. Both helmets have a medial ridge that smoothly transitions into a low slightly flattened keel-shaped comb over the rounded bowl. Also, it has a stepped side and an outwardly turned lower edge that gradually rises to a point at the front and rear of the helmet. Helmet's crown is encircled by a row of plain iron rivets. And yes – our rivets have just the same slightly domed heads as the original one. Rivets secure a leather strap on the inside where a textile lining is stitched in place. 

The special chic of this helmet is that it is free of ornament and its exceptional simplicity of form turns into sophistication. This is typical for many works made in Innsbruck and Mühlau during the same period.
