So, our stylization of medieval bascinet was based on the paintings from this collection of lege...

Review about items
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.
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.
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!

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!
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!
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!
