The "Tekko" or Glove is beautifully constructed using a double layer of Twill fabric, and a single water resistant twill membrane sandwiched between both layers, of which is super light, durable, and tough. Constructed using a Velcro wrist support strap, with an elasticated central finger loop. Each glove has three octagonal “Karlta” as an addition to the three layer running vertically down the length of each glove for added protection against scuffs and scrapes.
We provide an addition layer of protection to the “Ninpo Yoroi” outfit if requested at an additional cost by adding a 2mm HG Alloy plating sewed into each individual “Karlta” or octagonal shape of which traditionally is armoured using compressed lacquered paper in many Japanese combative uniforms or armour. The 2mm HG Alloy plate will give additional protection against cuts and slices to vulnerable areas of the body during combat, with similar protection to compressed lacquered paper used in traditional Samurai Armour. However, aluminium is very difficult to cut with a life blade, but it can deform on impact with one of which you need to consider? nobody want to be struck with a live blade, but it is better with some protection that without it at all?. On ordering please select either “Costume” for no Armour, or “Tactical” for Armour in the listing prior to purchase. ( The default is “Costume” )
