Our Arashi Nio-Do Yoroi (StormTrooper Samurai) is another premium Artisan Kachushi armor inspired by the Nio (仁王) or Kongorikishi (金剛力士), or the two guardians of the Buddha. They are both muscular and filled with fury. This Arashi Nio-Do is hand-hammered to form the curve of the wearers body and embossing of the muscle detail both front and back. The zunari kabuto (helmet), is crafted from 3 laminated plates, riveted together and then polished over to give it a well-finished look. The shino suneate (shin guards), provide a comfortable and secure fit to the lower leg. The kote (sleeves) are gohon-zutsu-gote style, with waki-gessen plates (also included). The Arashi Nio-Do yoroi requires over 120 skilled crafting hours to complete just 1 suit making this a true work of art and showmanship while retaining its practical usability.
This is a Limited Edition Arashi Nio-Do series, also known as the “Storm-Trooper Samurai.” Only 12 suits will be made and as of December 2018 less than 5 suits left in this limited edition series. Ordered suits require about 50 – 60 days for crafting.
