Happuri Mengu

A Happuri, or open face mask, is the term for a style of facial armor worn by the early samurai warrior class and their retainers.  Happuri were crafted from leather or iron in an upside down U shape.  This face mask would protect the forehead and cheeks when worn, without hindering the warriors vision or breathing. It was a common mengu (facial armor) for all warriors of that time from the Heian to the mid part of the Muromachi Period (794 – 1450 AD).  This Happuri is a traditional design, copied from an original Heian Era facial armor, and looks great worn in the field or displayed one of our menpo stands.
