Zunari Hachi Kabuto is crafted by our Gashira class armorers to simulate the traditional 3 plate zunari design, which forms the hachi (bowl) section of the kabuto and then hand cut each plate for the shikoro. It has a 3 plate design which gives the traditional zunari or “head-shape” look. The shikoro is then hand laced in odoshi sugake (simple hang) with care, using the color odoshi (lace) of your choice. The ukebari (helmet lining) is then carefully fitted to the inside of the hachi (bowl of helmet) to finish the kabuto.
Your choice of mengu (facial armor) can be selected to be crafted with this kabuto. Iron Mountain Armory armorers are happy to customize your zunari kabuto with any of the options listed. A perfect kabuto for an ashigaru to mid-ranking samurai.
