Kensaki-eboshi (剣先烏帽子)

A kind of headgear, used by performers who perform sanbasō in “Shiki-sanban”, a kind of divine service classified in Noh but not a genuine Noh play. It is a tate-eboshi without a folded top, characterized by a bluntly pointed apex and horizontal stripes of rust (wrinkles), made with Japanese paper and coated with lacquer. The colour is usually black, but some schools and families use gold on special occasions. Like other eboshi, it is fixed to the head by tying braid cords under the chin.
