Akayoroi Red Lacquered Suit of Armor

¥410,000¥492,000

This beautiful “vermillion-red” Yoroi is modeled after the battle armor worn by the Shogun during the increasingly turbulent times of the 1300's. It is brought back to life by our skilled artisans, who meticulously shape each piece by hand. The helmet is comprised of 8 separate iron plates, each with its own specific proportions. When joined, they result in the perfectly formed kabuto seen here. This suit's body armor is constructed by hand, using multiple iron pieces, beautiful lacings and elaborately crafted chainmail. This Yoroi armor comes with all parts and accessories listed in the charts below, and can be worn.

Principle parts of this set are made of iron.
