American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition
- n. A small, light, rounded steel helmet, terminating in a point and often closed in front with a visor.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A steel cap, originally of very simple form, named from its resemblance to a little basin. It was ordinarily worn alone; but in battle the heavy helmet or heaume was placed over it, resting upon the armor of the neck and shoulders. When the heaume came to be abandoned, on account of its great weight, the basinet was furnished with a vizor. It was the commonest form of headpiece during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, and so continued until the introduction of the armet. See helmet, vizor, aventaile, camail, and armor.
- n. bascinet
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. Same as bascinet.
- n. a medieval steel helmet
- Middle English, from Old French bacinet, diminutive of bacin, basin; see basin. (American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition)
