Odoshi Scale Samurai Gusoku (laced suit of scale armor) is a fantastic replica of a kiritsuke kozane kebiki-odoshi okegawa tosei samurai armor set, worn by high-ranking samurai during the end of the Muromachi / Sengoku Period. The hari-bachi kabuto (helmet) style is adorned with a high standing maedate (crest) that can be customized to your request of samurai clan mon or your own family or business logo.
This samurai armor is crafted in a Kiritsuke-Kozane Okegawa Do Gusoku which means “two-section clam-shell cuirass armor, made of lamellae, imitating classical kozane“. The Do (breastplate) is made from 14 individual simulated scaled plates of steel, each handwoven together with cotton lacing. Crafting time takes over 80 hours. The matching O-Sode (large shoulder shields) are can be laced using the color pattern or design of your choice. The metal edges of the armor are decorated with brass trim, called “fukurin.” The colored lacing gives the armor a beautiful, vibrant and classical appearance. As with all of our Gashira Class samurai armor, the Odoshi Scale Gusoku is handmade by the highly-skilled katchû-shi (Japanese armor smith) here at Iron Mountain Armory with great care and attention to detail.
