This beautiful Odoshi Gashira Samurai Gusoku (laced suit of armor) was worn in combat by the high-ranking samurai during the late Muromachi – Sengoku Period. Our Gashira class model is crafted with a Tosei Okegawa Ni-mai Do (hinged 2 piece breastplate) and is made from 14 individual steel armored plates that are hand laced together with high quality odoshi (cotton lace). Like the Kachi and Taisho versions, total assembly takes over 50 hours. The O-Sode (Shield like shoulder armor), features a colorful kebiki-odoshi style lacing (also referred to as “full lacing”) which our crafters are happy to custom color for you, in varying patterns or shapes. This colored lacing gives the armor a beautiful vibrant appearance, much like the classic samurai in the legends.
These genuine leather overlays are painted with traditional Japanese patterns or they can be printed to your custom design (please ask us for details). The armor plates feature a decorative metal trim called “fukurin”. Even the mon (clan symbol) of the maedate (helmet crest) can be customized upon your request. As with all of our Gashira series samurai armor, the Muromachi Hishi-Toji is handmade with more traditional materials and crafted by our more skilled katchû-shi (Japanese armor smith) here at Iron Mountain Armory. We offer many different customization options that our armor smiths are happy to do for you.
Please Note: We will email you to confirm your lace color combination to make certain we craft your samurai armor as you envision.
