Designed out of the pages of the graphic novel Gin-Ryu, written by Grandmaster Soke Stephen J. Egged. The Gin-Ryu Gusoku (Silver Dragon Armor) is a unique design that features iron scales to protect the shoulders, upper chest / back and upper legs. The shikoro (neck guard) and yodare-kake (throat guard), feature simulated iron plated scales. The symbol of the Gin-Ryu is painted on the chest, forearms and knees of the armor.
Yet another ultimate work of iron armor and truly a fine example of master crafters of the Iron Mountain Armory. Each iron scale is laced onto the iron laminated armor with a black silk cord (kuro ito-odoshige) creating an extra layer of protection and beauty that demands the respect equally on and off the field of battle. Available in Taisho series only.
Also receive: Sarashi belt, Silk Obi belt, tabi socks and kegutsu (Samurai Fur Shoes), along with an autographed copy of a Gin-Ryu Graphic Novel.
Gin-Ryu means Silver Dragon but it is available in other colors options.
