History: The Hachigane hachimaki was a small piece of flexible, or portable armor for protecting the forehead. It was used by both samurai and possibly shinobi (ninja). It’s main use was to protect the warrior from cuts to the forehead. Samurai would often use this armor while in combat, dueling, travelling or during semi-formal occasions. Hachigane became a sign of status, as well as light armor protection, especially during a duel.
- Optional Hachigane material linen or brocade
- Different paint options to suit your preference
- Mon (clan symbol) or logo can be added to center plate of your Hachigane for additional fee
