Although not Armor, no self-respecting Samurai Warlord or Chieftain would go into battle without his Kubi Bukuro. Basically, this was a small net made of rope or hemp. Seen used from the 11th Century to the 16th Century, The Kubi Bukuro was either worn on a Sash Belt or from the Warrior's saddle. In the net would be carried the head of an enemy. Some Bukuro were large enough to accommodate several. In some cases, Retainers (Squires), would have the honor of carrying the Kubi Bukuro.
