- Manufacturer: Iron Mountain Armory
- Manufacturer's Product Number: HBKM
The Hari Bachi Kabuto (Star Bowl Helmet) is a bowl-style kabuto crafted with multiple plates of steel, meticulously shaped by hand to join with the next plate; forming the shape of a bowl. The hari bachi kabuto features raised rivet heads, large rivets (o-boshi), small rivets (ko-boshi) or a rivet with a washer at its base (za-boshi). Unlike the suji-bachi however, the ridges or “ribs” of the joining plates are filed down to give the kabuto a more smoothed appearance. The hari-bachi kabuto became popular among the noble samurai class during the end of the 16th century.
This fine authentic reproduction of traditional Japanese hari-bachi kabuto is handcrafted by the most experienced smiths at the Iron Mountain Armory. Each kabuto is supplied with the matching menpo and a portable kabuto stand, to be proudly displayed. The hari-bachi kabuto is traditionally crafted, wearable and fully functional.
