This economical Kachi Class samurai armor has been crafted by our apprentice katchû-shi (Japanese armor smith) in honor of Sanada Yukimura (真田 幸村, 1567 – 1615), a legendary samurai represented by his iconic Gusoku (armor set). The Sanada Clan’s famous maedate (crest) is called “Rokumonsen,” which represents the six coins believed to be needed in order to cross the river of the underworld after death. This maedate expressed how the Sanada Clan had no fear of death, making them even more fearsome in battle. As a Taisho of the Sanada Clan, Yukimura brought great honor to his family name. He was known not only as a fierce warrior but an excellent military tactician. His reputation was well earned after he emerged victorious in many battles, even when vastly outnumbered. His fame grew notably after organizing and leading a successful defense during the Siege of Osaka. The legends call him “Crimson Demon of War” and “The Last Sengoku Hero”.
The antlers on Sanada’s helmet (made from synthetic materials for Kachi Class), personify his unique abilities for defense and attack. The standard color for this armor set is a vermilion or crimson color, sometimes with a suna (sand) finish. Iron Mountain Armory is happy to honor your request to paint this handsome gusoku in any color or finish you would prefer, as well as use the odoshi (lace) color of your choice. Our katchû-shi are also happy to craft your yoroi with a different style of helmet, menpo (face mask) and/or suneate (shin guards), to make your samurai armor more customized to your unique preferences. More options are available through the drop down menus. This samurai armor set is also available in Gashira and Taisho Class.
