HL413 Scottish Burgonet


The lightweight Burgonet was a very popular head protection throughout the whole 16th cent. It gave an excellent vision and allowed to breathe easily. This particular example was used largely by the Scots, also called “Steel Bonnet” by there British foes.

The original from which our replica is copied appears to be of German Manufacture. (There were no armories in Scotland; German blades and armor were highly desirable.). It is made of 1,2mm thick steel, is equipped with a leather padding, and has a chin strap. The sides open fully when the strap is open, allowing to put the helmet on. Weight is around 4kg.
