The traditional crafting of this Kiritsuke Iyo-zane Taisho class samurai armor set takes over 30 days of meticulous focus and labor. We will work hard to to accurately reproduce this “tosei” gusoku mimicking the classical “kozane” gusoku. An elegant tosei design like this one utilizes 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. This style of Kiritsuke Iyo-zane yoroi was one of the most common armors used by high-ranking samurai warriors and Daimyo alike.
Our Taisho katchû-shi will focus on quality over quantity, and much like the original artisans of ancient Japan. They will not jeopardize their reputation by crafting inferior quality armor.
