The Tokugawa clan was a powerful daimyo family. They nominally descended from Emperor Seiwa (850-880) in the early history of Japan. The beginning of this clan’s history is still a bit of a mystery but we do know in 1567, the Tokugawa clan started its rise to power. By the end of the Sengoku period the Tokugawa clan had grown in size of samurai and land. At the end of the Edo period, they ruled Japan as shoguns. There were fifteen Tokugawa shoguns altogether. Their dominance and influence was so strong that some history books reference the “Tokugawa era” instead of “Edo period”.
This armor is an authentic reproduction made of iron, steel, leather, cotton, silk and other materials that were traditionally used during the Warring States Period of Japan, finished with iron rusting brown paint, giving it an aged look and feel. Strictly made by hand in the traditional Japanese manner by highly skilled craftsmen. This is a real, life size armor which an average adult (with a height of 5′ 3″ – 5′ 9″ ) can wear and is fully functional. The clamshell dō features a pin hinge under the left armpit which can be removed and a cord can be laced through the hinges to accommodate a larger chest.
Handcrafted by the skilled craftsmen of the Iron Mountain Armory.
