Dragon Scale Samurai Yoroi, exquisite and imposing, is the result of over 220 hours of labor by our senior Gashira katchû-shi (Japanese armor smith) here at Iron Mountain Armory. This is the ultimate work of art and truly a fine example of our Gashira iron smith’s ability to craft something that is beautiful, yet functional. The “Gyorin Kozan” or Dragon Scale Armor is carefully hand-crafted with over 2,000 dragon scale plates. They are all hand laced and fitted over a laminated steel nimai-do. This not only creates an extra layer of protection, but an artistic beauty that will command respect equally on and off the battlefield.
Our experienced Gashira katchû-shi at Iron Mountain Armory will craft this powerful dragon scale samurai yoroi set using a Hachi Byo-toji Zunari Kabuto (helmet), “tosei” okegawa do (clam shell design), with optional water buffalo horns and brass scale plating. This makes the armor set almost double the weight of a normal suit, weighing in at an average 50 lbs. This yoroi is a true work of craftsmanship that can be customized for every individual client with the options listed. Please let us know if you would like our armor smiths to add a personal touch to this set.
