ARMOR

ASHIGARU

Offered here on consignment is a full set of Ashigaru armor with box and stand.

Armor is not a subject which I am very knowledgeable in.  Therefore I have provide basic information found via the internet, along with multiple photographs. The provided information should give potential buyers enough information to determine the quality and overall condition of this armor.

It is a nice complete set of the type of armor ordinary foot soldiers wore to battle, not the elaborate suits the upper classes wore.

The Japanese Ashigaru 足軽 were foot-soldiers of medieval Japan. The first known reference to ashigaru was in the 1300s,but it was during the Ashikaga Shogunate-Muromachi period that the use of ashigaru became prevalent by various warring factions.

If you would like to know more about the Ashigaru, a google search will provide a wealth of information.
