I purchased my helmet approx 4 years ago and it is still going strong but I am thinking of a new onw and noted that this version is with butted aventail. Do you still do riveted aventail/ My old one has riveted and was custom made to fit.

ArmStreet Team

Hello, we can still make it in custom size, please simply select custom size option over the title of the helmet. Currently we can make it with butted aventail only.

What is the recommended method for removing and cleaning the padding inside the helmet after use?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Robert, it is not possible to remove the padding because it is riveted to the helmet. However, you can untie it inside and pull it outside out and clean it with some detergent for soft furniture, for example.

Fits my head absolutely perfect! This is actually my very first helmet. I've been making my first kit and I've been very nervous about anything fitting wrong, but lo and behold, Armstreet does not disappoint!

An amazing helmet, testing it was a blast and I can’t wait to use it once my set is complete

I own and have owned allot of helmets in the past, being in the s.c.a that is inevitable. However, This is by far THE BEST helmet I have ever had, the craftsmanship is outstanding. From the leather, to the blackening of the steel, to the polish all the way to the welding this thing leaves me speechless. I absolutely love it, I'm glad you made it, I'm glad I bought it. 10/10 will be back for more. Thank you, you are awesome.

Nice helmet but is way to tight I recommend to everyone getting an inch bigger than your head size. Not very rounded super tight on the sides but the back and front was loose.

ArmStreet team

We are very sorry and disappointed to hear about that, that`s a pity that you didn`t let us know about the problem once you`ve received the helmet. Thank you for letting us know anyway, we`ll consider your review in future production.

If this is a general question we may post it on the page to help other customers, otherwise we will just answer you by email

Does this fit with the other laser cut visors? I was just curious as it appears to have the same mechanism for taking off the face plate.

ArmStreet Team

Hello, yes it can fit if is suitable for the helmet size, but there is no way to check it remotely, unfortunately.

Are the eye slots an inch or less in vertical measurement?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Brandon, they can be made an inch or less upon request.

Can this be made with riveted mail instead of butted?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Joshua, yes it costs $70 extra. Please simply leave this request in the comment to your order and we will contact you with the invoice for the riveted aventail then.

Hello James, yes of course. We make custom size armor. However, just to be sure, you may contact our support team with your measurements (full height, chest and waist circumference) so we could confirm them with our production team.

can the houndskull basicnet visor be made to fit on this and ordered with it as an extra

ArmStreet Team

Dear Matthew, unfortunately, the houndskull basicnet visor cannot be made to fit on the top hinge, sorry.

Can this be made in 16 gauge stainless steel? What is likely cost?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Jeff! Yes, please simply select custom size option and select 16 ga stainless steel at the checkout. 

04 of August 2018

Could this helmet be provided with the bar grill in addition to the klappvisor and riveted chain mail aventail? If so what would the additional cost be. Thanks.


Yes, Darryl, both bar grill in addition to the klappvisor and riveted chain mail aventail are possible. Please contact website support to calculate the cost.

Hi, I'm interested in the Medieval Helmet Klappvisor Bascinet of German origin, XIV do you have any images of the Additional interchangeable SCA bargrill visor? Cheers Duncan

ArmStreet team

Unfortunately, we don't have any pictures of a bargrill visor made specially for this helmet, but its bargrill looks like the one pictured here. It's all the same but with a center-mounted hinge instead of the side hinges.

Can you make this from 12 gauge mild steel with mild steel chanmail drape? If so how much would it cost?

ArmStreet team

Nope, we don't use steel thicker than 14 ga (2 mm).

If I were to get the Medieval bascinet klappvisor helmet, without the attached chainmail aventail, just the helmet and liner and chinstrap, would it cut down on the price any?

ArmStreet team

You'll save about $50 on the aventail, just contact us at contact@armstreet.com to get the discount.

can i get it with an rivited or welded stainless steel avantail?

ArmStreet team

To date there is no such option, sorry.

I see this now come in stainless steel, which is what I want, but have you checked to see if this is SCA legal? Some of the gaps around the face might be a problem. Maybe adding some bars around the chin might help. If it is, I'd be interested in this with an interchangeable bargrill in stainless. Do you have the etched "paladin" klapvisor available in stainless? If so, what is the price for that? Thank you, you do beautiful work.

ArmStreet team

We make it SCA-legal by adding internal steel plates (under the aventail).
Etched Paladin klappvisor is available on the site.

30 of August 2011

Could you take out the chin strap and liner, and take off the aventail? What would this do to the price?

ArmStreet team

Doable, you'll save about $50 on the aventail.

04 of March 2011

does it come in stainless steel?

ArmStreet team

Yes, basically comes in 2 mm (14 ga) stainless steel with stainless aventail.
