The T-face barbute was developed in Italy during the 15th century. These helmets were popular throughout Europe and offered an alternative to the more restrictive sallet. The extended sides protected the neck and jaw, dispensing with the need for a separate bevor or gorget. Our T-faced barbute replicates the helmet of the ‘Avant’ armour housed at the Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow and is crafted in 14 gauge steel with an adjustable leather liner and chinstrap. This item is shipped to you pre-oiled for protection. Close attention to quality is a top priority in every piece.
We also have a helmet stand for this item as pictured which is usually £19- but if purchased with the helmet is only £15-
