Samurai armor. Original. Antique. For you.

09 April 2018

Have you been looking for a samurai armor but are not certain how original the items you found online are?

You are aware that most suits of armor are in fact assembled using different armor parts, but not many sellers are clear about this. In addition, Japan’s traditional restorations include complete re-lacquering which is often omitted in the sellers’ descriptions. With so much uncertainty of authenticity not to mention the various prices, it’s no wonder that you still haven’t purchased your first armor, so what are you waiting for, make your dream come true!

Even museums are facing similar problems as curators often lack an in-depth expertise in this field: The Museum of Fine Art in Houston and the Indianapolis Museum of Art, for instance, have at last figured out how to purchase complete and original Japanese suits of armor for their collections. We have in fact helped many samurai armor enthusiasts and connoisseurs to create new collections or improve their existing ones.  And since there are not too many good options of Japanese armor out there, we’ve been told that this is a like a dream come true!

You can either continue down the path of searching for something cheap but beautiful, a path you already have been traveling and that is likely to bring you disappointment, or you can change the direction and let us help you in choosing your new outcome.

We carry a wide selection of samurai armor, helmets, and accessories and only deal in first-class original items that are in excellent condition. We are one of the leading sources of antique samurai arms and armor, providing unique and rare items to serious collectors, museums, and galleries around the world. Our aim is to provide you with the finest Japanese armor and artworks available. We'd like you to have the opportunity to experience a taste of the true samurai spirit and of traditional Japanese culture.
