Japanese samurai helmet, Kabuto

Kabuto - This helmet has an iron “hachi” of thirty-three riveted laminations, a “shikoro” of five plates laced in “kebiki” (spread hair) style with navy blue “ito doshi” laces, and axes as “yokodate” made from whale bone.

I realize this helmet was made to be powerful but I can't stop laughing at the killer rabbit.
