Hello , please could you tell me what you think about my zunari kabuto. Is it an old one? does the shikoro match with the hat? I have a japanese friend that do traditional japanese fabrics. I would like to ask him to make a liner for this kabuto. How it suppose to be in a zunari kabuto? is it different from the other?does anyone car tell me the different size of it? is it silk or cotton?
When I bought this kabuto it was really dirty with earth on it. I m sure tour was more Nice ;-) Now I need to find/create a liner and a maedate. On a this kind of kabuto dies the maedate was suposed to ne in copper or Wood? May ne nothing pre defined
Piers I use the pre made ones from time to time, problem is that they are round. You can't get a good fit on most hachi using them, also they sit too deep inside which defeats the purpose. If I use one I cut it and add an egawa band. The band wraps around the koshimaki and is glued, stitched into place.
