     The kabuto is a helmet which was worn by samurai and their retainers, while dressed in armor.  There were many types and styles of kabuto crafted during the Feudal Period of Japan; which were perfected during the Sengoku Era. 

     This particular kabuto was traditionally crafted by the Iron Mountain Armory in a style known as a Zunari (head shaped) and was most commonly used between the 15th and 17th century.  It is fitted with a shikoro (nape guard) to provide protection to the back and side of the neck, from blade and arrow strikes.  It features a stretched cloth lining (ukebari) for comfortable fit of most adult head sizes.

     The menpo (men-pô = facial armor) is a traditional “ressei-men” style; which features a mustache (or kuchi hige), facial wrinkles (shiwa), posts (odayori ore kugi), detachable nose guard (hana), ear covers (mimi) and throat guard (tare).
