2@Also shikoro çù. The rim of a soldier's helmet *kabuto ™h. Strips of leather or iron, attached to the crown of the helmet hachi ”« with cords or rivets dropped from the right, left, and back of the helmet, to protect the neck. The first strip attached to the crown was called hachitsuke-no-ita ”«•t‚Ì”Â. Several more strips were attached, finishing with the distinctive hishinui-no-ita •H–D‚̔ (chestnut-stitch strip). The number of strips of leather or metal used in the shikoro (not counting the hishinui-no-ita) often gave the helmet its name: sanmai-kabuto ŽO–‡™h (three-strip helmet); gomai-kabuto ŒÜ–‡™h (five-strip helmet). There were many variations in shikoro shape, each with their own name. These included the Muromachi period kasajikoro Š}èC (umberella-rim), the straight-edged touseijikoro “–³èC, late-Muromachi period, and the manjuujikoro é\“ªèC named after the manjuubun, Edo period.
