What is Mabisashi Tsuki Kabuto of Samurai Armor
The term "Mabisashi Tsuki Kabuto" refers to a samurai helmet with elaborate decorations, which is considered to be for the ruling class or nobility of the Kofun period. The bowl (Hachi) of the helmet has a narrow brim (Hisashi) similar to the brim of a baseball cap. The brim was attached to protect against attacks to the forehead and direct sunlight. The structure is made by arranging small iron plates horizontally, wrapping a curved belt-shaped iron plate called "Koshimaki no Ita" and "Doumaki no Ita" around the middle and bottom of the bowl, and securing it with metal pins. On the top of the head, a disc-shaped iron plate called "Fuseita" is placed, and on top of that, a semi-spherical metal fitting called "Ukebachi" and "Fusebachi" is connected with a cylindrical metal fitting called "Kuda", and the assembled object is placed on top.
