The sallet is a helmet which has XIV century Italian origin. At beginning it was in two version- with covered face (barbuta) and without visor (celata), but finally it became the close helmet. It was used both by soldiers on foot and horseback, horewer always as a part of a full plate armour. We can see it in medieval paints, sculptures, even drawing in medieval combat treatises. The sallet was the most popular in the second half of XV century. Every country has it’s own version – german sallet, french sallet or english were different. Usually it has long neck guard and one narrow sight.
