Bascinet update

Postby Mark Griffin » Sat May 10, 2014 6:21 pm

Update on bascinet with jousting visor being made by Wasson Artistry in spring steel.

Its based on one in at Leeds from Cobham Church and seems to have had a long life span judging by the various additions and changes made to it so would work 1460-1520's in extremis. Even earlier possibly judging by similar examples elsewhere.

One change we have to make is the addition of a non-period safety catch, this type dont feature any but the chances of the visor being struck under the lip and lifted up are too great to be comfortable so a solution needs to be found. This type features a demi bevor on the front that the visor fits into, seems to be an English style, but thats not enough to prevent the problem.

More anon.
