The Medieval Pigface Bascinet Helmet one might think the styling was done for unique aesthetic purposes, it actually offered an increased level of protection to the face. If a warrior was hit in the face it wouldn’t press against the bones and the eye slits were slanted which wouldn’t allow the blade to penetrate. This was a popular option throughout the 13th and 14th centuries. There are plenty of ventilation holes so it can be comfortably worn during reenactment. It was typically worn by infantry, and became popular for its ability to protect the head, face and neck of the warrior. Made of 18 gauge steel, it features a visor trimmed in brass and brass posts. It also has holes for attaching a chainmail.
