Pig face bascinet was used at the end of XIv and beginning of XV century (ca. 1370 – 1430). Pig face was a popular type of helmet used since the end of XIV century to half of XV century (ca. 1370 – 1430). It’s german name – Hundsgugel – means “dog’s hood”. Although it is connected with medieval Germany it was depicted in many european countires. The most characteristic part is visor looks like a cone, which provides aerodynamic shape. It was an advantage during fight on horseback.

 

The helmet available in our store has high bowl and short, pointed visor. The sights are narrow, convex and ronded. It provides good view and proctect eyes againts of horizontal cutting. The ventails are symmetrical at the both sides of visor, so it is not very difficult to take breath and the parts of broken lance can not easily damage face. The pig face bascinet is a very good head’s protection for a knight, who fights in battle of 100 – years war or in battle of Grunwald.
