Bascinet Hounskull (or Hundsgugel) is a type of medieval head protection, which was widespread in the XIV among knights of all social classes. Helmet with extended visor “Hounskull” looked like a dog muzzle, so it got such name. Visor could be attached to the dome with hinge on the forehead part (so-called “klappvisor”) or with one or two hinges on the sides.

Numerous holes on visor and eye slits provide with perfect ventilation and vision. Our version of battle basinet is decorated with cross on the cheek. For better protection, such functional head armor was often completed with mail aventail.
