Bascinet Hounskull (German “Hundsgugel”) is a type of popular medieval helmet that was in wide use among European knights of all military branches in the XIV-XV centuries.

Helm basinet itself could have various shapes of dome and design of visor. However, visor “Hounskull” was still the most demanded. Its shape not only provided with great vision and breathing, but also reflected direct nobs.

Bascinets were usually completed with scale, mail aventails or/and padded pelerines. Thus, way, neck, shoulders and upper parts of chest were protected well. Our custom-made bascinet Hounskull has sewn liner, so your medieval head protection will be very comfortable in wearing.
