Japanese helmet kabuto had appeared approximately III-V centuries A.C. As a rule, it has semi-spherical shape of dome with plates for neck protection. Dome consisted of six plates and reinforcing forehead plate.

Kabuto was a very important element of medieval Japan armor and resembled status of its owner. Basically, it was made of six or eight metal or leather plates, riveted together. Sikoro (an element of neck protection) was made of incurved metal lacquered plates, linked with silk or leather belts. Originally, Kabuto never had the full protection of face, but could be completed with a mask. This model of Japanese helmet has a bar grid mask. Your face will be completely in safe during medieval fencing and combats, though such mask is not a historically correct.

This made-to-measure Asian combat helmet is completely handcrafted by our artisans.

It's not great. I have a unique privilege to have an armorer close enough to correct the mistakes made with this helmet. Writing this today because the review button was not here when I got it. No steel under the shikoro, flat bar grill makes it illegal to use and the nose makes it a torque threat to your neck. A tip to the armorers. Get in a helmet and fight for a bit. Then put one of these on and see what I'm talking about. Research and study how a kabuto were made and why. Hell look at other kabuto made for heavy fighting. Properly padded a helmet can be an inch from your face and never touch you. This was 6-7” away and 8 hat sizes too big when I sent it back to get fixed. It came back 4 hat sizes too big and I could fit an ax head under it. If you are not skilled in metal work, don't know how to weld, do not have an armorer or want your helmet functional when it arrives, this is not a helmet for you.
