This replica of the helmet of famed Daimyo Date Masamune is lavishly detailed and is not only a great centerpiece to a collection – but fully wearable as well! It is crafted from 18 gauge steel with an antiqued charcoal gray finish. The armor plates are articulated in the traditional fashion with thick cotton cords and the helmet is embellished with brass accents.
The Menpo face guard is removable and is completed with a genuine horse hair moustache. The interior of the helmet is padded and lined and Date Masamunes iconic crescent moon crest is made in gleaming brass and is removable. Included with the helmet is a wooden display stand.
One of the most iconic figures in Japanese history, Date Masamune is instantly recognizable by his black armor and the ostentatiously large gold crescent moon crest upon his kabuto helmet. As if these trappings did not make his appearance imposing enough, he had only a single eye which had been lost to smallpox at a young age.
