c1450’s Jousting Helmet & Tournament Helm

Instead of a great bassinet with multiple visors for jousting and the melee, the customer requested to go with two separate helmets. The first design is an early Italian style frog mouth based off of a few paintings (c1460-1470), and the second is a tourney helm based off a couple of drawings (c1460) from the British Museum. I’ve included images of these source materials below.

Materials:
1050 spring steel (2mm thick for the tourney helm and 3mm thick for the front and skull of the jousting helm)
