A helmet made from a single sheet of metal which has a special opening that begins from the eyes and ends at the mouth. This gap actually grants the wearer a greater field of vision than other helmets, and makes breathing easier as well. Some may fear that the wide opening in the middle of the barbut could be penetrated by a weapon, but as long as its edges are rimmed with thicker metal, it should be enough to prevent this. Some craftsmen use this particular part of the helmet to make it shine more like a work of art.
