Ketsueki Mentsu Samurai were fearsome samurai of the Sengoku Era (Warring States Period), who painted their yoroi midnight black and their menpo (facial armor) crimson red, giving them an eerie shadow look with a fearsome blood red face coming at their enemy from the lingering darkness. If this fearsome sight wasn’t enough to make their enemy freeze in fear, their shrieking war cries would as they blindsided the flank of their opposition!
Our apprentice katchû-shi (Japanese armor smith) here at Iron Mountain Armory will work hard to make this terrifying samurai armor set to your dimensions, in honor of these fearsome samurai. The yoroi set features a robust hachi zunari kabuto (helmet) and our popular okegawa Do (chest armor). This yoroi is a replica of what the Ketsueki Mentsu samurai would have worn over 460 years ago.
Our katchû-shi will craft this yoroi from a traditional design but use mostly synthetic materials, relatively modern techniques and tools to create a samurai armor which is a bit more economical. We offer the options to change the style of kabuto (helmet), menpo (mask) and suneate (shin guards). Standard colors of the Ketsueki Mentsu Armor are Black Uzumaki main paint, with Vermilion Menpo and Sode (shoulder armor). It is finished with Black and Red Lacing. We do offer the option to customize this yoroi set however you like, including paints, laces, material and leathers, mustaches styles and more. Also available in Gashira Class.
