The momonari shape (peach-shaped) is inspired by european helmets during the Momoyama period (1575 - 1615). The Kachushi (Armour craftsmen) made them from two iron plates specifically joined together like the shell of a clam. They where designed specifically to deflect the bullets from the new muskets appearing on the field of battle brought by the Portuguese and Spanish. The momonari kabuto was made well known for its abilities on the battlefield during the campaign of Korea (1592-98) in Kyushu island.
