Kabuto - Samurai helmets
Perhaps only overshadowed by the weaponry from which they were meant to protect, the kabuto, or samurai helmet is one of the most endemic icons of the proud elite class of hereditary warriors that once utilized these amazing pieces.
Renowned the world over for the precise, solid and yet graceful fabrication, the Japanese helmet evolved over the centuries from humble early head-shaped bowls to ultimately encompass items of almost every imaginable shape, style and design, all of which were ingeniously made by some of the most renowned smiths the world has ever known, whose metal working skills to this day remain unsurpassed.
