Our artisan katchû-shi will take great pride in handcrafting this magnificent Iyozane no So-Fukurin Yoroi with traditional techniques. The meticulous crafting of this Taisho class samurai armor set takes over 35 days of intensely focused work to accurately reproduce the “tosei” gusoku mimicking the classical “kozane” gusoku. The design utilizes Kiritsuke Iyo-zane simulated scale plates, that are laced together to form a 2 piece chest armor. It is then bound together using a pin-hinge, known as an Okegawa do. The So-Fukurin is the thin brass trim that is carefully added as an edging around the kabuto (helmet), giving it a more luxurious appearance. This particular yoroi set features an engraved brass dragon on the visor of the kabuto. This yoroi style was a popular armor used by high-ranking samurai warriors and Daimyo during the Edo period.
