Late 15th century gothic sallet of German origin. The sallet shown in the pictures was made from one piece of steel. As a standard it is made of 2mm tempered steel. Sallet comes with linen inlay and a leather chin strap.

Product made by one of the best Polish armourers. The complex and scrupulous process of production takes time. However it has a direct result in high quality. It takes about six months for our armourer to fulfil an order.

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. Usually it has long neck guard and one narrow sight.

Available model is a close helmet which has deep, long shape. It does not have any moving parts on neck or visor.  It has one, long, narrow sight. It is decorated only by a small comb and rivets around the bowl on hight of the sight. This sallet could be popular, because in many museums we can find similar helmets dated on 3. quarter of 15th century.
