I Am Into These: Samurai Helmet Bottle Toppers

June 5, 2019

These are the Samurai Bottle Helmets made and sold by Tokyo-based Tadayasu. The meticulously crafted bottle toppers were designed to look like the actual helmets worn by some of the most famous samurai in Japan's history (from left to right: Ikuyasu Tokugawa, Oda Nobunaga, Uesugi Yoshinobu, Sanada Yukimura, and Date Masamune). Unfortunately for anybody looking to add a little samurai flair to their booze but isn't made of money, they cost around $299 apiece. Probably not the most appropriate headgear for the army of $4 Sutter Home warriors I have sitting on top of the fridge.

Keep going for a closeup of each while I just glue some googly eyes on my wine bottles and call it a day.

Thanks to Keith TT, who agrees those rubber finger monsters are also a more economical choice.

    "$299 apiece"

    Or you can buy an actual samurai helmet.

    I want those helmets, but I feel like my kitchen isn't adequate to host them.

    Be sure to bow your head in shame before you commit seppuku.
