The nasal bascinet is a historical stylization created for medieval combat. The helmet is based on a bascinet with a nose plate, but with additional items for greater safety in modern tournaments. It protects, has an optimal weight and is easy to navigate in battle.
When we created this helmet according to historical analogues, our main goal was to make medieval stylization, with allowable (and necessary) deviations from the source. The helmet have to fit the different variations of the armor and be comfortable to use in any nomination.
In this nasal bascinet, the face is protected by a grate, and outside is covered with a chain mail. So it will be comfortable to breathe, you will be less tired during the fight, and would not be afraid of frontal attacks. Mail, unlike the historical equivalent, lifted to eye level to close the grate and make the helmet safer. Due to the design of the helmet, it is well heard, and the observation slit is made wider and closed with two jumpers and a nose plate. This will give you the opportunity to see well in battle and at the same time remain protected, + it will be easier for you to talk with your allies and focus on the battlefield. The nose plate is fixed and will not open during the fight. So it can withstand a direct strike with a two-handed weapon. And the streamlined shape of the helmet will not allow you to be grabbed by the head and hits will be easier to slide down of it, losing its power.
This bascinet is a universal helmet that is suitable for single and massive battles. This is an medium option for those who do not want to limit themselves only to buhurts or only fencing. Unlike the wolf ribs bascinet, this helmet has better protection and you can be less afraid of a weapon prick in the face. At the same time, in compared with Topfhelm “Griffon”, the bascinet with the nose plate has better visibility, audibility, it is easier to breathe and navigate in battle. Possessing excellent protective qualities (especially in the configuration with a hidden grate that protects the lower part of the face and covered with mail), it allows you to control the enemy and never lose sight of him. Suitable for both beginner and experienced fighter.
