The hineno-jikoro, the creation of an armourer known as Hineno Oribe-no-Kami, was very popular during the latter part of the sixteenth century. It was closer fitting, quite protective, and lightweight. All of these were arguments in its favor. The fukigaeshi of hineno-jikoro are almost without exception of the small, ear-shaped variety, typically made in one piece with the hachitsuke-no-ita. The solid steel plating and cunstruction is much like the kabuto that samurai often wore in this time.
This fine authentic reproduction of traditional Japanese hineno-jikoro style kabuto is hand ¿made by the Iron Mountain Armory. Each kabuto is supplied with the matching menpo and a portable kabuto stand, to be proudly displayed. Assembly instructions are also included. The kabuto is wearable and fully functional.
Features: Made from 18 gauge iron, battle ready, leather insert with cotton lining and custom wooden stand. Metal construction with colorful cord embellishment on the neck protector and mask. Fits adult head size range of 55 to 62 cm.
