Suji Bachi Gashira Kabuto
The Gashira Suji-Bachi Kabuto is a “ridged” bowl-style helmet crafted with multiple plates (ken) of steel, meticulously shaped by hand to join with the next plate; forming the shape of a “bowl” (bachi).
This Suji Bachi kabuto features raised ridges or “ribs” showing where the helmet plates join together and features kiritsuke kozane (Simulated Narrow Scale) shikoro (neck guard) and tare (throat guard). The kabuto is embellished with cotton kebiki-odoshi style lacing (also referred to as “full lacing”).
Shows optional fukurin (decorative metal trim) around the front edges of the plate, and embossed mon on the fukigaeshi (ears of the helmet). Any Gashira (NCO rank) samurai would certainly be honored to wear such a kabuto.
