Nodowa – Crimson Glossy – Like New – Sold As Seen.
A Nodowa is a “bib like” neck protector composed of a U-shaped plate armor that hangs from the neck covering the chest and throat area. In the West it is known as a Gorget, and was considered under armor or auxiliary / optional armor, worn by the samurai of Feudal Japan, in addition to the standard armor parts. Simply put, Nodowa is a neck protection that is composed of metal, fabric and/or leather. While providing extra protection to the samurai, it did reduce neck movement.
