Hari Bachi Kabuto (bowl helmet) was crafted by the skilled Gashira katchû-shi (Japanese armor smith) at the Iron Mountain Armory. The Gashira class Hari-bachi is crafted to replicate a traditional multi-plate Suji-bachi Kabuto with raised or flat flanges. It features a flat nanbokuchô mabisashi (flat visor) and large fukigaeshi (turnbacks or ears) common in the Nanboku-chō to Muromachi eras. Simulated hari-bachi are pressed into a bowl shaped helmet, from a single sheet of steel. We apply your choice of copper tubes for raised plate design or thin metal strips to simulate the flat plate design (as seen in the product image). The flat flanges (plate ridges), give a more sleek look and protects the flanges from bending / denting if struck.
This particular Hari-Bachi Kabuto is pictured with the 8 simulated plates with raised rivets, Egawa E1, Black Kawa Fukurin and Kiritsuke-Kozane plating style. You can of course custom design your own kabuto using the many available options on this page. This is a great budget friendly kabuto to honor any Gashira samurai. You can order this Gashira Class Hari Bachi kabuto with your preference of mengu (facial armor), menpo (half face with nose – pictured) with options mustache style or hanbo (lower face).
