Details

By the early 14th century the great helm had mostly been adandoned in favour of the bascinet. The bascinet, however, afforded no protection to the face of the wearer, and this resulted in an increase in injuries, particularly during the Hundred Years War, when the longbow had become dominant. Various methods of protection were used until the appearance of the hounskull in the middle of the 14th century. For decades the hounsull was ubiquitous before becoming unfashionable in the early 15th century.

With its protruding muzzle, it was the visor of the hounskull which gave the helmet its name. The protuding face of the helmet protected the face from blows or missiles and provided greater ventilation than the earlier forms of gret helmet. The visor could be swung up to uncover the wearer's face when not in combat, granting better visibility and unrestricted ventilation.

Based upon an example from Milan, GDFB's hounskull bascinet is crafted in 14 gauge steel. Attachment points for an aventail are provided. The helmet is lined and padded, and comes with a chin strap.
