The Hari Bachi Kabuto (star bowl helmet)is a bowl-style kabuto crafted with multiple plates of steel, meticulously shaped by hand to join with the next plate; forming the shape of a bowl. The Hari Bachi Kabuto features raised rivet heads, large rivets (o-boshi), small rivets (ko-boshi) or a rivet with a washer at its za-boshi (base). Unlike the suji-bachi, the ridges or “ribs” of the joining plates are filed down to give the kabuto a more smoothed appearance. Hari Bachi Kabuto’s became popular among the noble samurai class during the end of the 16th century.
