Yokohagi Okegawa Taisho Yoroi
The Yokohagi Okegawa Taisho Yoroi is another historically accurate gendai samurai armor set hand crafted by the highly skilled artisan katchû-shi (Japanese armor smith) at Iron Mountain Armory. This Yokohagi Okegawa Nimai-Dō yoroi is a common yoroi set, which was commonly used by mid to high ranking samurai at the end of the Sengoku, or Warring States Era and into Edo Period (Peaceful Unification). This particular samurai yoroi features a beautiful Byo-Toji (raised rivets), Tosei Dō (chest armor) and Byo-Toji Hineno Zunari Bachi kabuto (helmet). It features Kiritsuke Iyozane (simulated scale), sode (shoulder guards) and kusazuri (defensive skirt plating).
