The successor to the medieval sallet, the Burgonet Helmet was used primarily in the late renaissance of the 16th century. Offering similar protection to the sallet it was considered to be lighter and easier to wear.
This helmet is quality steel with touches of polished brass metal along the sides and along the falling buffe visor. The helmet is round in shape, featuring an attached collar and neck protector, as well as a raised crest and a visor that both provide additional strength and protection, plus a touch of decoration. The falling buffe secures around the base of the helmet via a leather buckle and strap, features cut-outs for easy ventilation and breathing.
First came into use early in the 16th century and had attained its classic form by c. 1550
Intermediate helmet ("close burgonet") with the peak, crest and falling buffe of the burgonet, combined with the hinged bevor of a close helmet.
