The Hachi Goshozan is an economical “bowl” kabuto crafted by the Iron Mountain Armory. Styled after a hari-bachi (multi-plated helmet) design, this Hachi Gozhozan is crafted with simulated plating. The gashira katchû-shi (armorer) still make the shikoro in the traditional method of hand cutting lames of steel, hammering, polishing, painting and finally hand lacing a quality cotton odoshi, using the color of your choice. The ukebari (helmet lining) of the Hachi Goshozan is then carefully fitted to the inside of the hachi (bowl of helmet) to finish the kabuto. Please feel free to select your choice of mengu (facial armor). This reproduction Hachi Goshozan kabuto makes a great start or addition to any reproduction collection and could be worn with pride by any low ranking samurai warrior.
Please note the product images shows an 8 simulated plate Hachi Goshozan kabuto with all options. Optional byo-toji (raised rivets) can be added to the hachi. Mayu (embossed eye brows) can be added to the visor, giving your Hachi Gozhozan a more unique look. For an extra touch of class, a copper fukurin (edging) can be added as well. Your clan pride be displayed by selecting to add your clan mon (heraldic symbol) to the maedate (crest) and Sueomon (small heraldic symbols) or select “custom” to add your own symbol. To receive your kabuto as pictured, you will need to enable these options when ordering. You can upgrade to real plating, making this into a full Goshozan Hari-Bachi Kabuto via the options.
