BLACK LATE EDO PERIOD ARMOUR

Armour lovingly restored by Robert Soanes yoshigane@yahoo.com in England.

As delivered from Japan                                                                          After restoration

                                  

Robert Soanes comes highly recommended - he lovingly restores armour (lacing, brocade, silkwork, laquerwork etc). Trained in Japan, he regularly visits his Sensei to perfect his skills. His work is of the highest standards and is hand crafted (all his restoration work uses traditional Japanese materials and is hand stitched and crafted).
