The Cabasset was one of the most popular late 15th-16th century helmets. The Cabasset developed from the medieval kettle hat and just like that type of helmet it provided an excellent protection from blows and projectiles from above. This Cabasset has a leather inlay and a chin strap.

This item is handmade in a limited amount. Each item is unique. Finish and sizes can slightly vary.
Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
