For all the innovative advances in Japanese Kabuto design, they seem to have failed horribly with the Ashigaru. For starters, the ashigaru helmets don't even protect the side of the head and or the neck at all, even the the forehead is barely protected. Also this is just a pure guess as I have no idea how strong the ashigaru helmets are but they look so flimsy that a strong enough man with a katana could probably cut through the front of the helmet. Its just really surprising to me because in my opinion out of all East Asian helmet designs the kabuto is one of the best. Yet I would say the Ashigaru helmet is one of the worst out of the commom foot soldiers helmets in East Asia. Anyone have any idea why the Ashigaru helmet is so unprotective.
