DA600 Takeda Shingen Samurai Armour

£1,900.00

Daimyo Takeda Shingen (The Tiger of Kai) was known for his martial prowess and prestige on the battlefield in the late Sengoku period of Japan. This authentic reproduction of Takeda Shingen's armour is the result of over 152 hand crafted, man hours of the finest materials and skilled crafts men of the Fenglin armoury.

     Takeda Shingen was one of two of the most vicious Samurai War Lords to do battle in Japan, the other being Uesugi Kenshin. Over the years they would engage in combat a total of five times. Their fourth battle, which was at Kawanakajima, would be their major battle. Because of Takeda Shingen's fierceness as a fighter, he was given the nickname "Tiger." Uesugi Kenshin was referred to as the "Dragon" in his warring days as a Samurai. Thus the legendary battles of the Tiger and the Dragon were about to originate in Japan.

The armour comes with a traditional box and stand for storage or display.
