Maki Do Samurai Armor is crafted by our apprentice katchû-shi (Japanese armor smith) at Iron Mountain Armory. It features “Maki”, a traditional Japanese style of gold lacquer painting dating back to the Heian Era. This particular yoroi (armor set) doesn’t use actual lacquer, but the simulated effect is similar. Our standard kachi samurai yoroi offer the additional option of painting a historic samurai clan mon. You can also request your own stylized design on this custom suit.
This kachi samurai armor set features the “Tosei Yokohagi Okegawa Ni-Mai Do” (Two Section Cuirass with Horizontal Plating Joined by a Pin Hinge), a common armor style at the end of the Sengoku Era. Your custom Makie Do will be crafted from overlapping individual metal strips (lames) that are smoothed over and then painted. The kabuto (helmet), menpo (mask) and suneate (shin guards), armor style can be changed upon your request via the Extra Options. A display box with stand can also be added for an additional cost, to proudly display your yoroi set. Custom sizing and other options are available as well. This yoroi set is also available in the higher quality Gashira Class.
