With both completely handsewn inner liners for helmet and aventail, aventail retention leather with leather cord and mail aventail assembled all together I can finally call my side-pivoting houndscoull bascinet finished and completed. - Weight: 4,8kg (2,9kg helmet, 0,5kg visor, 1,4kg lined mail aventail with sewn retention leather)
- Material: 1,5 - 2,0mm hardened steel
- Aventail : 9mm flat rings, all riveted on round rivets, mild steel
It was an amazing experience to work with very precise reproduction of real existing helmet that have the right proportions and shapes. This allowed me to work on proper handsewn liners covering the right areas - mainly aventail going above neckline as seen on surviving museum pieces.
