Hello everyone! This is Igor Parfentev from BuhurtTech and Slava Perepelitsa from legendary ArmorySmith! And today we will be testing the “Heavy Griffon” bascinet. The edge of the plate is a bit cracked. Overall, if the helmet can withstand such hits, and the fighter is not injured, is a very good result. This is a great helmet, I can tell from my experience that my helmet was broken 5-6 times, but it is 2.2 mm, not 3 mm. The armor is damaged and it is perfectly fine, it requires constant tending and repair. I would wear this helmet in buhurt and I would feel very safe in it. I’d like to mention that buhurt is developing, the fights are becoming more fierce the technology of buhurt equipment development is constantly improving. We will be seeing the fights get more fierce and the armor get better and better. Thank you very much, Slava, for giving this helmet for us to test. I will see you at the tiltyard! After the first crash test, we realized that there are a couple of issues we could improve. I hope there will be no more cracking of the steel here. The welding does not spread to the edge, it stops around here, and here is the rivet. These two areas were the main problem. Here is the small defect caused by welding. I find this defect to be just visual. It does not cause any weakness in construction. But we will check it anyway, we left it on purpose and we will be hitting there. There is an additional weld which is left inside. The test of the second helmet. We’ll start, as usual, with a falchion. The precise hit caused the deformation of the button. I didn’t break, just moved to the side. Here we have these holes on the bottom. it is easy to install simple bolts there and the problem with the visor is fixed. We have a broken poleaxe, the pole is starting to break. And the handle on the grand-falchion is broken from the vibration. To be honest, I don’t want to break the one-handed falchion. Now I will show how the non-tempered helmet from spring steel is deformed. The helmet is 2.5 mm thick. Let’s take not broken weapon. Here, 3-4 hits and the deformation is so severe, that the helmet would need to be fixed. No cracks here as well, but the dents are severe. Even on the welds, there are no cracks. So, we can clearly see that the tempered spring steel 3 mm here has a longer lifespan and better protection than non-tempered helmet from 2.5 mm. During the fight people move, they are tired and I honestly haven’t seen such damages. Such big dents. If there are such dents, it must be very rare. Of course, you should avoid such strong hits. As you can see, there are no cracks where the defect from the welding was. You can see that the second helmet does not crack. Thank you and goodbye!
