Our Gashira class Suneate (shin armor) are handcrafted by the Iron Mountain Armory at the time of your order.
The suneate are the greaves or plate of armor meant to protect the leg between the knee and ankle.
We offer 3 levels of protection of suneate (light, medium, heavy) With its pre-curved profile, the Samurai Suneate protects the shin much like traditional steel or rawhide greaves would.
*The light suneate is crafted of cloth, silk, leather, ribbed iron plates and thick cloth knee (popular for horseback).
* The medium suneate is crafted with cloth, silk, leather, split iron plates and thick cloth knee with iron plating support (popular for martial artist's).
*The heavy suneate is crafted of full iron plate and curved iron plated knees.
Suggestion: The light or medium suneate is better if you will be performing martial arts (rolling around).
