bakumatsu forehead protectors / HITAI ATE - HACHIGANE

Recommended Posts

Dear all,


New year, new needs.


After visiting the Ryuzen museum of history in Kyoto last year, HITAI ATE aroused my interest mainly because it is a piece of armor definitely constructed for war,


I am now looking for iron forehead protectors from the Bakumatsu era like the ones on the pictures below. If you have other kinds in good condition for sale please PM me.
