Ukebari (浮張) is the Japanese term for the cloth liner used inside the kabuto (helmet). They are often made from hemp and cotton. This is an important feature for the helmets as it not only makes the kabuto more comfortable, but creates a gap between the metal plating and the warrior’s head. It then works to absorb sweat, keep the head cool and more importantly help absorb any shock caused by strikes. Ukebari were often bathed with incense to keep them smelling fresh. They eventually needed to be replaced as they become soiled or damaged. This traditional helmet liner by Iron Mountain Armory will fit any of our kabuto and even most antique kabuto. Perfect for replacement of worn liners, or for a DIY project.
