Classic Samurai Armor

     The Iron Mountain Armory C Series, uses the traditional Yokohagi Okegawa ni-mai dō, which was very popular in the Sengoku (Warring States) Period. The C Series features the Okegawa armor style with the rivets filed down. Okegawa means "tub-sided" and refers to the obviously tub-like shape of the cuirass and its construction. However, because the armor was designed with a single hinge under the left arm, allowing you to slide into the dō and tie it closed from the other side, it was better known as a "clamshell" dō. The most common style of Okegawa dō in this time period was the Yokohagi (horizontal) in which the plates are riveted in horizontal rows. The rivets on the Classic Series samurai suits are ground flush with the surface, giving the armor a more smoothed look and feel.
