The Maki Do Samurai Armor is expertly crafted by our Gashira katchû-shi (Japanese armor smith) at the Iron Mountain Armory and feature “Maki”, a traditional Japanese style of gold lacquer painting, which dates back to the Heian Era. Your suit will be crafted using traditional designs by the original armorers of Feudal Japan. As an additional purchase option you can also have us paint a historic samurai clan mon (logo/insignia) onto it, or add your own custom crest in its place.
The Gashira Class samurai armor set features the “Tosei Yokohagi Okegawa Ni-Mai Do” (Two Section Cuirass with Horizontal Plating Joined by a Pin Hinge), which was a very common armor style at the end of the Sengoku Era. The Do is crafted from overlapping individual lames (metal strips) that are smoothed over and then painted with your mon of choice. The kabuto (helmet), menpo (mask) and suneate (shin guards) armor style can be changed and/or customized upon your request. Also available in the more economical Kachi Class.
