Armor of the Exceptional: Kabuto Description

"A helmet referred to as a 'suji-kabuto', it resembles the shape of a brush tip. The vermillion beetle-horn crest contracts with the traditional elegant 'shikoro' neck guards and 'fukikaeshi' plates, and when combined with the 'menpo' visor, makes this a conspicuous piece that leaves the opposition cold. This Tosei-gusoki armor was owned by Shima Sakon, the tactician who served Ishida Mitsunari. Sakon was a man who possessed keen intelligence, his tactics keeping Tokugawa Ieyasu in check. As a military commander, he was both courageous and wise, and touted as being 'too good for Mitsunari'. The staid navy blue thread binding on the black lacquer 'kozane' scales are a reflection of Sakon's intelligence and fidelity."
