Hi all, I'm looking for armorer recommendation for a historically accurate cabasset helmet and accompanying gorget.

I've had bad experiences that have run over the last two+ years with part time, hobbyist armorers and am looking to commission work from someone with business sense that can produce work on time and with quality.

I'm located in the central United States and, while I'd prefer someone in the US (or even closer that I could get an in-person fitting with), I'd consider reputable armorers from Europe, too.

Not sure where to begin looking, so I'd appreciate some recommendations!

I would recomend Tomala:

He lives and works in Poland .You will get the helmet in an outstanding qualitiy and he delivers on time, but he has a lot of clients, so the helmet will be done at the end of 2018 or 2019. The helmet will be accurate, he's working for reenactors.

Peter Fuller out of Canada. Working with him for 20 years. Very nice pieces. Very strong.

Will,
As far as armorers go you could also check out Jeff Hedgecock at Historic Enterprises. He is in Southern California. There is also Jeff Wasson in the US. There is Eric Dube in Canada. Also look at White Rose Armoury, Greenleaf workshop, and Englysh plate armourie.
Hope this gives you some options!
