Magister Armorum
Hello and welcome.

In this topic I'll be posting my work, linking it to my webpage.

Right now I'm working on an early XVth century Italian great helm.

Here's a direct link to my website's blog.

Now I'm in italy, where i don't have access to a workshop.

But this doesn't stop me from working with drawings and proof of concept.

Hi Augusto, thanks for all your research and information! You are helping me appreciate a world of armor I did not really consider before your work.
And after quite a long hiatus, I'm back to work!

Easy start, just making a simple mid-XIVth century bascinet to go under a great helm.

Right now I'm cleaning it with a wet grindstone and files, to achieve a historical finish.

Comments and critiques are welcome.
And after a long hiatus, here we go again with another helm.

This time it's a klappvisor bascinet from 173 Italy.

As usual it has been all handmade. So forging, punching, chiseling and filing were all part of the process.

It stands at 2.15 Kg. The skull is 3 mm thick and the visor is between 1.5 and 2 mm thick, mild steel.

It is currently for sale, so if either you or one of your friends might be interested, don't hesitate to contact me.

New commission, new pictures!

Here's the description directly from my website.

"The skull is heavily inspired by one the the bascinets held in the Poldi-Pezzoli museum in Milan, and the visor form various Italian sources of the 1360-1370 period. The skull started as 3 mm thick mild steel, which has been forged resulting in the thickening at the temples area to 3.5 mm. The visor also has been forged from 3 mm steel. The helm weights 3.4 Kilos total."

You do nice work.

I like that you do the unusual from the period and that you do it all by hand.
Thanks Rod! Very much appreciated.

And here are the last two bascinets with their aventails.

The first one doesn't have a liner for the aventail, but I like it better. But the liner for the skull is a bit too thick on the back, thus pushing the front against the forehead. I'll tell my brother to take away some cotton from the liner.

The second one has way too much material on the front part and had a pre-existing liner that I had to fight against wile installing the aventail on the helm.

But I had just 4 days before the event to make and install the liner and aventail, so I can't complain too much.
