Chapel with bar grill and mail aventail “Louis” was one of the most popular medieval helmets through XIII-XVII centuries. This simple, comfortable and functional helmet successfully resisted both halberds and the first bullets. Details changed, but the essence - the metal dome with wide brim remained constant, which says a lot about this design reliability. And here is one of the great representatives of the chapel family – Louis, chapel with bar grill and mail aventail. This is stylization for Byzantine helmet with a brim. It comes from southeast Europe region (Byzantium, South Rus, the Balkans), where such medieval war helmets used at XIII-XV centuries. This hand-made Middl...
Bascinet must be the most popular type of medieval closed helmets. Only chapel could compete in popularity with it; though, wearers of these helmets were quite different. Shape of bascinet helmet notably varied not only in different historical period, but also depending on the area of wearer’s living. But, in our humble opinion, spherical conical shape of dome with a center, shifted to the back – this one was the most widespread on the territory of the West Europe. “Roman d'Alexandre”, dated by the XII century with paintings of the XIV century is inexhaustible source in this issue. So, our stylization of medieval bascinet was based on the paintings from this collection of lege...
This model of Tophelm – Helmet with horns – is typical for European cavalryman of XIII-XIV centuries. We made horns as top figure of the helmet. Such types of medieval helmet was worn over the mail coif, under what liner with stuffed roller was used. Late topfhelm was often worn over close-fitting skullcap cervelliere that in time evolved in bascinet. Then mail coif was replaced with aventail, that was attached to the under helm (cervelliere or bascinet). Steel armor of such type was often used as a part of full European knight armor. You can use this medieval knight helmet for: SCA HEMA Larp Stage performances Medieval festivals Reenactm...
Torse - medieval heraldry headband Starting its way as entirely practical elements, after a while, torse and mantling became a symbol or true knighthood and must-have of knight emblem. In the beginning was a torse… No, not like this, Firstly, in time of the first Crusade, crusaders were boiling in their mails and crusader helmets alive and saw agal on the heads of Bedouins. This thick fabric roller, stuffed with crude wool, twisted and tied in a ring, was pressing keffiyeh to bedouin’s head, preventing sunstrokes and cushioning an impact of sabers. By admiring the smarts of the Saracens, knights shamelessly borrowed design of agal, slightly changed it and called a torse. Aft...

Landsknecht hat with bows In spite of seeming simplicity, this landsknecht hat is one of the most interesting model. Just look at these cute decorative bows of cords on brims, showing it up among others and paradoxically making wearer’s look more severe. Even though bows were quite seldom adornment of landsknecht headwear, but these tiny tots look originally even for it. Unlike most of landsknechts hats, this one has quite small brims and not every soldier of fortune was able to afford to be so decent, whatever strange it may sound. Such hat is a choice of sophisticated fighters with a wise head and hairs, gray with age. *** Urs Graf, 1516 year *** We offer you to order ...

Landsknecht hat with feathers Solve a riddle: bright, loud and impudent bird in feathers, but not a parrot. An answer is German landsknecht, owner of not the most elegant, but the most recognizable medieval costume – landsknecht dress.

Early cabasset (chapel) Here is a pinnacle of the French armorers’ engineering in the XV century. Yes, don’t smile and look so surprised. This “egghead” and funny medieval helmet was the best protection against the most tremendous hand-held weapon of that epoch. But, let’s talk about step by step. Cabasset, Aragón, Spain. 1490-1500, Philadelphia Museum of Art Chapel is an identifiable ancestor of cabasset, as it was the only affordable type of head protection for unwealthy mounted knights and infantrymen. However, such plain and unattractive medieval steel helmet saved many lives. In comparison with expensive and complex closed helmets, cabasset had such u...

Review about items
Great product, very comfortable especially under the helmet, perfect measurements
Well crafted, fits perfectly, fast and good communication with the team, perfect thanks!
Got my Close Helmet in the mail about a week ago. The Helmet fits perfectly, and the quality is absolutely stunning. I was not expecting it to be so perfect. Ill definitely be recommending this site to everyone I know. My only question, maybe it should be an email is if I could get the the name of the crafter who forged my Helmet as Id like to see other works he does.
This helm is absolutely beautiful! Workmanship is perfect! I was a bit afraid of weight but installed liner makes wearing very comfy and I feel myself well-protected. Well done, guys! Thank you!
I was very pleased with the quality and workmanship of the torse I received. They were very professional are careful in their communications to ensure that it was made exactly right. Could not be more pleased.
The hat in white color is really what I was looking and searching for since quite a bit. I’m glad Steel Mastery was offering this type of headwear - it’s difficult to get white felt. The quality is good and the size (custom made) fits perfectly. The customer service was fast, friendly, patient and very obliging! It wasn’t my first purchase and will definitely not be my last. Thanks for the uncomplicated and open communication
Amazing quality, soft fabric and a very good fit! This chaperon will up your costume a notch for certain.
Fits perfectly. My new favourite hat! Excellent service as well. Worth the wait.
The hood is comfortable. It's also very big, even with custom head and neck measurements, so you can either wear it normally or conceal your face if you wish. It's light enough so you don't notice it much when having it down. Make sure you wear it far enough forward so it doesn't begin to slip back as you move around in it.
Very satisfied about mine, well done, nothing to complain about! (It's around 1-2 layer of padding)
I had to get the padding that came with my helm removed for this, but its well worth it
It was a long wait but in the end it was definitely worth it. I got it shipped to north america by the way. Anyways fitment was perfect, the leather straps feel strong and look great. The padding is nice and thick. The cotton feels high quality. Im so happy with this hood. Going to put this one through hell and back wish me luck!
Just got these in last night and I already LOVE them! Thank you and everyone involved so much for your time and diligence.
I'm probably gonna have to get a bigger helmet to go over this, but thats the only downside I've had. A fine bit of padding for yer noggin!
This tailor made helmet has comfortable weight, guarantees good vision and air circulation. Easy to fix both gridles. The padded inlay fits perfectly. The helmet won't move sideways even with open chin gridle. Also one doesn't need an extra hair cap. Prize is more than reasonable. The process of order and payment was easy online. Every step was documented and shared, often via photoes. If necessesary, clarification of details preferred or the bill was made prior executing next steps. My wishes have been met fully. The order arrived safe and undamaged due to smart wrapping. Codes provided made delivery tracking online easy. Overall I was not only a customer but found myself in every step in the best hands. FIVE STARS!
The product exceeded expectations. The workmanship is excellent and I'm happy with the item. The process from initial order to delivery has been easy and well communicated. Thanks SM.com
Perfect liner, completely made by custom measures. Made very fast and also sent with fast shipping. Highly recommended.
Great liner, just what I needed, surprisingly fast shipment, highly recommend!
Quality at the top, more than pleasant service and measures at the top I would not fail to recommend steelmastery to my medievist friends who do not know him yet
This was my first order from Steel Mastery and that helm tops all expectations! I am really impressed with craftmanship and so perfect fitting. Great thumbs up!
I ordered this armet of stainless steel and with extra breath holes on the left cheek. Special thanks for sewn cotton liner (don't have to do it by myself, lol). Perfect fit and workmanship, thanks to all Steel Mastery team!
I ordered this helm with some changes. The face plate on mine has squarish holes for the eye slots. The production time of my helmet took twice the length advertised however, Steel Mastery did compensate me for my time by adding brass accents and an aventail as a bonus. The helmet and faceplate were heatreated. The only modification I had to do was to add a retaining strap for the faceplate.Their staff was very friendly to deal with and would write me back within one to two business days. I would recommend them. I am very happy with my bascinet. I have used once so far in SCA type point combat with blunt steel weapons and it held up fine.
Great helmet!!! Steel-Mastery you are the best.
Bought this second hand from a colleague, drilled extra air holes for better breathing and wore it in IMCF 2018 world championships. It is a tank and has taken extreme blows and I've never felt a bit. Love this lid.
It's really nice replica, workmanship is fantastic. Helm is light and fits my head perfectly. I added aventail so low-face is also protected now. Thanks a lot
I purchased mine three years ago. And, I could not be more happy with it. I have used it in countless combats and it has always protected me. It is dented and beaten no. But that makes it all the more realistic. Buy one. You will love it.
Finally I got this armet! workmanship is very qualitative, fitting is perfect. Now just have to test it in fighting:) Thanks to all steel Mastery crew!
This helmet is just WOW! Craftmanship, size and fitting, material - everything is on the top! Congratulations to artisans! I will order more stuff from you,guys!
