The sallet or salade was popular across much of Europe throughout the second half of the 15th century. This reconstruction features a moveable visor (introduced late in the period to improve visibility), a reinforcing brow plate and a bevor for protection of the jaw and throat. This helm replicates an original piece found in the church at Witton-le-Wear in County Durham, England. Both the helm and the moveable visor are crafted in 14 gauge steel and the Sallet is fully wearable with an adjustable leather liner and chinstrap. Excellent head protection for the weapons-contact re-enactor.
