The T-Face Barbute was developed in Italy during the 15th century. These helmets were popular throughout Europe as they offered an alternative to the more restrictive sallet. The extended sides protected the neck and jaw, dispensing with the need for a separate bevor or gorget. Our medieval GDFB T-Faced Barbute replicates the helmet of the ‘Avant’ armour housed at the Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow and is functional steel with an adjustable leather liner and chinstrap.
