Epic Armoury’s Barbuta is a style of helmet inspired by Italian soldiers of the 15th century. Designed to protect the head during combat, the Barbuta is elegant as well as functional. The helmet covers the head, neck, and most of the face--while still offering clear vision through the helmet’s Y-shaped visor, which has been reinforced with additional rolled steel and rivets. Enjoy this sleek and easy to wear design, demanding attention on the battlefield with such details as the curved crest running from forehead to neck.
The Barbuta has been made to wear with renaissance style clothes, but it also has a high-fantasy feel. It has been popularized in modern culture as a helmet favoured by high-elves.
Secure the Barbuta by tightening the leather strap beneath the chin, keeping the helmet in place. Made of 1 mm 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.
Available in sizes Medium and Large.
The Barbuta is made of 1 mm steel, with steel rivets. Inside, the helmet has a comfortable adjustable lining of black split leather, and two sizes of foam padding are included in the box.
Keep metal armour pieces dry and oiled when they are stored to avoid rust. Leather straps need regular maintenance with leather care products, to keep the leather from drying out.
