Beautiful product, fast production and delivery. Exactly what wanted to line my bascinet. Well packaged for Delivery to UK. Fits perfectly.
This was the first piece I bought off of Steel Mastery, and convinced me to get the rest of my soft kit here too. The craftsmanship is great, and with maille over it it gets the look of the heavily padded coifs in High Medieval artwork across pretty well. The section around the crown with the extra padding is a great place for my helm to rest, and I think it'll work well for a lighter helmet too when I get around to making one. If I have one small quibble, I think the ventail covering the chin and lower face could come on slightly tighter and higher, but I think I can deal with that by adjusting my maille hood a bit.
When I ordered my Torse I put a request in for a colour combination they didn't normally do, but steel mastery went above and beyond to get not only the colour I had asked after, but got the perfect shade as well. My torse is absolutely beautiful, made to an incredibly high standard and will last me for many, many years to come. I cannot be happier
