Our Lyonell is a full-helmet with a visor. The visor can be flipped up over the helmet, and is fully removable, effectively tramsforming this helmet in a barbuta. The visor has a big eye-slit that doesn't hinder visibility, and several round small breathing-holes. The Lyonell helm is wrought to follow the shape of the head and is reinforced with a low crest from forehead to neck. It's shape is elegant, while still being comfortable to wear.
The helmet gives full protection to head except at the throat. The Lyonell helm was used mainly in the renaissance time and was favoured for the mix of protection and excellent visibility. Made to wear with renaissance style clothes, it has a high-fantasy feel that will fit with a lot of characters.
Made of 1,2mm thick mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.
