This reproduction is based on a Houndskull Bascinet made in Milan around 1390 a.d. It is part of the armour from Churburg, Tyrol. Reconstruction of a late medieval bascinet of the 14th Century with folding Klappvisor and was usually worn together with a mail curtain ("camail" or aventail), was usually attached to the lower edge of the helmet to protect the throat, neck and shoulders.

The first reference to a bascinet, was in the Italian city of Padua in 1281, being worn by infantry. It is believed that the bascinet evolved from the cervelliere, which was worn with a mail coif, as either the sole form of head protection or beneath a great helm. 

It is the visor which gives the helmet its name, as this resembles the face of a dog ("hound" or, in German, "Hund"), with a protruding muzzle in order to better protect the face from blows and to grant greater ventilation 

This model of medieval helmet bascinet was popular in the XIV century.

This model of medieval helmet is compliant to SCA-standards.
This bascinet helmet design enabled the user to wear a gorget.
