For example a single helmet can consist of over 32 different hand-spliced iron plates, individually riveted together. Our Taisho model samurai armor is made specifically for private collectors, museums, re-enactors, martial artists and those who demand the highest detail and quality.
Our Ashigaru model armor is offered in response to our many clients who want to own a suit of Samurai armor but at a more economical price. This model is exactly the same as the Gashira model, but this model will have synthetic materials, such as satin instead of silk or the extra fittings. There is no padding under the shoulders and back to make the armor more comfortable. Because the armor is made quickly they might have blemishes in the paint. However, most people can only tell the difference between the two models under close inspection. These suits of armor have the same overall construction as the Gashira models but just using more economical materials and less fittings.

WARNING: Please beware of the cheap imitation knockoffs that are sold on auction sites by people claiming to be the factory. We recommend that you ask a lot of questions before you buy.

You may notice that the picture of the same person claiming to be the factory owner is being used by several different sellers or the watermarks do not match the seller name. There are many red flags. We have noticed lately that a fair number of our armor photographs have been copied and posted for sale on Ebay by an unknown seller. Of course this is clearly fraud and we have reported the matter to the proper authorities.
