The kabuto that Hachirou is wearing is (almost) the exact same design
as my old (working) kabuto, made by the same armorer within a year of
mine; the biggest difference (from that angle, at least) is that since
mine was the beta model, and Hachirou's is a regular production model,
he has a much nicer hachi (that is the term for the rounded cap on the
top, right?) - his is bronze, and mine's just stainless steel.
The other way to tell is he's wearing a red belt, and I was wearing a
white one :)
I'll be wearing my snazzy new helmet on the field this year, though
which might reduce confusion (unless I need to lend out my older helmet
to another household fighter who's been waiting on his kabuto to be
delivered ...), especially with my mon in brass on the fukigaeshi.
