Japanese Helmets

The Japanese helm, also called a Japanese Kabuto, was worn with ancient Japanese armour by feudal warriors known as samurai. The kabuto helm features a strong bowl that protects the crown of the head and a suspended series of articulated plates that protect the neck. Often the Japanese helmet displays a crest of the wearers clan, adorned with Maedate (Front Crests), Wakidate (Side Crests), or Ushirodate (Rear Crests). These designs can be clan or family emblems or sculptural or flat objects representing animals, mythical entities, or prayers. Horns are prevalent ornaments, and many Asian helmets showcase stylized deer horns called Kuwagata. A classic kabuto was typically made from several hundred metal plates arranged vertically and riveted together. Medieval Collectables carries a superb selection of gorgeous samurai helms, including a number inspired by historical figures like Daisho Kake, Date Masamune, Oda Nobunaga, and Takeda Shingen.
