The sallet (also called celata, salade and schaller) was a war helmet that replaced the bascinet in Italy, western and northern Europe and Hungary during the mid-15th century. In Italy, France and England the armet helmet was also popular, but in Germany the sallet became almost universal.This Steel German Sallet reflects the style of one such historic piece of armor. Handsome and wholly protective, this helmet demonstrates the protective power of the sallet, which offers full head protection, while leaving the chin and mouth open, eliminating the need for greater ventilation (traditionally, a warrior looking to protect their lower face would have worn a bevor with their sallet). This helmet is made entirely from mild steel, and is offered in 18 Gauge.
