- Manufacturer: Iron Mountain Armory
- Manufacturer's Product Number: TTZ01
Handcrafted by the armorers of the Iron Mountain Armory, the Tatami kabuto is meticulously crafted with steel plates attached to chain mail and sewn to a padded cloth liner; for comfortable protection. Because it was crafted using chain mail and steel plates, the tatami kabuto could be easily folded and stored for transport; making it the ideal armor for traveling samurai and the common armor used by ashigaru (foot soldiers).
The tatami (karuta) armor was worn by all classes of samurai and foot soldiers (ashigaru) alike. High quality Taisho Karuta armor was more elaborate, ornate and offered better protection. While the lower quality Kachi sets of armor is more plain and offering only basic protection. Handcrafted by the Iron Mountain Armory.
