Frog Mouthed Helmet
Time Period: 14th century
Location: Europe
Common Construction: Steel

The frog mouthed helmet is a late 14th century invention designed for use in the joust. It is angled to deflect a strike from a lance and the eye slit is as narrow as possible to prevent splinters of wood from striking the wearer's face. While providing excellent frontal protection, adequate sight can only be achieved by leaning forward and it is not designed for use on the battlefield.

The frog mouthed helmet was commonly fastened to the breastplate so that it would not fly off the wearer's head if he were to be struck in the face with a lance.

Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG edoirts or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
