Iron Mountain Armory has crafted this beautiful custom sogonari style kabuto in honor of the year of the Fire Monkey. The Kasai Saru Kabuto (火猴 - Fire Monkey Samurai Helmet) is a one of a kind kabuto, completely handcrafted using real hair (うま). It features a hoate (open face armor), okotta mayu (browse) and shiwa gaku (wrinkled forehead), then painted red and gold; giving it the very distinct look of a fire monkey. The kasai saru kabuto requires over 50 hours of crafting time, spread over 30 days, so please allow 45 to 60 days for delivery from date of purchase.
Details: This Sogonari kabuto (haired helmet style) is from the Momoyama Period (1573–1615). This sogonari kabuto is crafted using horse hairs, meticulously glued and layered onto the dome of the kabuto. The mabezashi peak is a muromachi style. This songonari kabuto is quite complicated and time consuming to make and quite a rare reproduction samurai kabuto.
