The Barbuta replicates a 15th century helm that was popular throughout Europe. Bearing a strong resemblance to the helmets of the ancient Corinthians, the Barbuta (or Barbute) was found not only with the facial cutout shape shown in our model but with a T-shaped cutout (no nasal) and with an open-faced rectangular cutout. Designed as a helmet for regular infantry, it fitted closely to the skull and nape of the neck and the sides almost touched the shoulders, affording very good protection.
