Our late medieval Coventry Sallet helmet is a reproduction of the well known Coventry Sallet.
Hand-made from 2 mm steel the Coventry Sallet is battle ready and suitable for full contact re-enactment. The helmet is similar  to the (north-) Italian styled sallets but has a pointed calotte as many English sallets have. The original is dated 1460 AD and can be seen in the The Herbert  Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry. Visored sallets usually were worn by mounted knights and men-at-arms while open face sallets typically were used by foot-soldiers e.g. crossbowmen and archers. An elaborate lock fixes the visor. The helmet is fitted with an adjustable padded liner and a riveted leather chin strap and brass buckle.
