Kasa Kamon Engraving
Hat - 「笠」 in Japanese.
The Kasa mon is a very diverse emblem, and can represent many different types of hats. The Kasa mon has about 90 known variations, but interestingly, even nowadays, most people (about 70%) who use a hat emblem are named Takahashi.
The most famous users of the Kasa mon is probably the Yagyu Clan in the Yamato province. Prominent figures like Yagyu Muneyoshi and his son Munenori became the headmasters of the Shinkage-ryu, one of Japan's greatest swordsmanship lineages.

1.5 cm fits on all weapons and is fairly small for a Kamon. We recommend this size only for Kamon with few details. Fits all weapons, including 24 mm Jo.
2 cm can be considered as standard. It fits on most weapons, except on the thinnest weapons such as the 24 mm Jo.
2.5 cm is fairly big and will not fit on thin Koryu Bokken, Tanto, Bo, Hanbo, and Jo.
If the selected size is too big for the ordered weapon, the Kamon will be adapted to the maximum engravable size.
