Breathtaking vermillion red.
Samurai Store Exclusive
This beautiful “vermillion-red” Yoroi is modeled after the battle armor worn by the Shogun during the increasingly turbulent times of the 1300’s. It is brought back to life by our skilled artisans, who meticulously shape each piece by hand. Entitled “Sakura” because of its beautiful lacquer painting. The helmet is comprised of 8 separate iron plates, each with its own specific proportions. When joined, they result in the perfectly formed kabuto seen here.
