This is a fully functional reproduction of the samurai Yamamoto Kansuke's armor, general of the Takeda Shingen clan. Made for Samurai clan re-enactment, LARP and collectors. Authentically handcrafted by the Iron Mountain Armory.
In battle, katana was typically paired with the medium sword wakizashi. Both were worn by members of the Japanese warrior class. The two weapons together were called the daisho, and represented the social power and personal honor of the samurai.
