The Exceptional One's Helmet Description
A type of helmet that resembles the shape of a brush tip in design. The vermillion beetle-horn crest contrasts with the traditional elegant neck guards and plates, and when combined with the visor, make this a conspicuos piece that intimidates opponents. This set of 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 navy blue thread binding on the black lacquer scales are meant to be a reflection of Sakon's intelligence and fidelity.
