We have 10 additional Kari-Ebira which were crafted specially for FX’s new TV series ‘Shogun’. These are crafted from bamboo with bamboo nails securing the panels. The arched backs are made from iron, wrapped in hemp rope.
These are finished and ready to ship, as seen.
Kari-Ebira are a more common “open framed” light samurai quiver. The arrows are secured with a cord or leather thong, twisted around them and then wedged into the ridged bottom. The base was normally a box or a basket. It was favored by many samurai because it was light, easy to transport and could be worn while on horse, foot and could even be seated on the ground. It was used universally for both hunting and war. On occasion it was used by some mounted samurai or carried by their retainers. Handcrafted from wood or bamboo, capable of holding more than a dozen ya (arrows) depending on the yajiri (tip). Some styles of kari-ebira quivers were covered with fur (optional) and called Sakatsura quivers.
Keeping with traditions Iron Mountain Armory has recreated the kari-ebira in a both a traditional yet economical way. We also offer you the option of choosing a mon, or your own logo to be painted onto the ebira (box). (Default Option: Black with Gold Dragonfly).
