Japanese Armour and Samurai Armour

As can be imagined, Japanese armour differs greatly from the traditional European armour of the medieval ages. Distinctive and definitely different, any suit of Japanese armour is an instantly recognizable look that will definitely impress and awe others. And at Dark Knight Armoury, we are proud to offer you a selection of protective Japanese pieces, so that you can sport your favorite form of oriental protection. Japanese armour was traditionally made from plates or scales of iron or leather, and as the Samurai were expected to act in many different roles in combat, the armor was usually made to be as lightweight as possible. Bright color and lacquer were also common features, as much to make a samurai stand out as to ensure protection from the harsh Japanese climate. This section features both metal and leather armour, although leather is by far the more common pieces. The do is the most common piece you will find here - a Japanese breastplate that creates the iconic look of a true Samurai. Some of our do are even outfitted with sode - that is to say, the breastplates have attached pauldrons. We also offer kote, which are Japanese, Samurai styled bracers to wear to protect your arms. This and more are what you will find here at Dark Knight Armoury, when you take the time to look through our selection of Japanese armour.
