Japanese Helms from Medieval Collectables

The Japanese helm is also called a Kabuto, which was used with traditional Japanese armor as worn by the Samurai. The Kabuto has a strong bowl which protects the crown of the head and a suspened series of articulated plates to protect the neck. Often the Kabuto or Japanese helmet has a crest of the clan, adorned with "Maedate" (Front Crests,) "Wakidate" (Side Crests) or "Ushirodate" (Rear Crests). These can be family or clan emblems, or flat or sculptural objects representing animals, mythical entities, prayers or other symbols. Horns are particularly common, and many helmets sort "Kuwagata", or stylized deer horns. A Kabuto was usually constructed from 3 to over several hundred metal plates, riveted together. The plates are usually arranged vertically, and radiate from an opening in the top.
