■Helmet bowl: Sabiji Hakken Suji Kabuto

The helmet was made in the early Edo period based on the signature on it. It was signed by Munemitsu(宗光) from Myochin school, a famous armor-making school that has been continuing for generations. Today, 25th master of Myochin still produces Samurai armor.

Suji Kabuto used many small riveted iron plates to form its shape. This helmet used Hakken (eight in Japanese) iron plates.The surface is Tetsusabiji style, which only applied lacquer for paint base for the iron not to get rusty. It looks less shiny than normal lacquered surface.


■Do(Cuirass):
Tetsusabiji 5 iron-plated Okegawa Do laced with navy blue thread. Instead of using a large number of small lamellar plates called Kozane, This cuirass used large rectangular shaped iron plates riveted.The name Okegawa came from the fact that the shape of this cuirass resembles the side(Gawa in Japanese) of Oke(Japanese wooden tub).
