George K (NY, USA)
It is far more elegant and beautiful than I would have imaged from the web pictures. I am extremely impressed by the heaviness of the materials and the lacquer finish..
Daniel Gwee (Singapore)
I was simply delighted by the close fit despite not being custom made; amazed by its relative light weight; thrilled by the superb lacquer finishing and held in highest respect the exquisite craftmanship!
Ronnie Colwell, UK
Now is a great opportunity for anyone who has an interest in the culture of Japan to have a piece of artwork of there own, the workmanship is beyond belief, and the quality is superb...
Daniel Simpson (OH, USA)
An amazing piece of craftmanship. Unique in every way with painstaking detail. Extreme attention to every part of the yoroi.
