The Saika-Shu were known for their skill with firearms and their strong spirit. They were a strong clan of mostly Buddhist monks, and because of their strong spirit, they were often not under the rule of any particular warlord. So tenacious was this clan that they even fought amongst themselves.
They also fought as mercenaries for feudal warlords and quickly became wealthy and had no need to fight for money. With their own fleet of ships, they became involved in trading and commerce with far-away lands. Seeing the advantage of firearms, the Saika-Shu had over 4,000 expert musketeers that even the musketeers of the famous Oda Nobunaga could not match. It took Oda Nobunaga over ten years to finally defeat the Saida-Shu Clan.
This fine authentic reproduction of traditional Japanese yokohagi Okegawa ni-mai dô samurai armor is hand made by the Iron Mountain Armory.
