Samurai Style Forearm Armor

Samurai Style Forearm Armor


These are a pair of relatively simple vambraces inspired by Japanese kote arm armor

Each pair is made out of 5 panels of 8-10 ounce latigo cowhide which are laced together with Paracord.

Each pair is laced closed to ensure a secure fit around your arms.

You have the option of having the vambraces waxed hardened, please let me know in the order notes whether or not you'd like yours hardened. If you don't let me know, they will come unhardened. Also, if you'd like, you can include measurements of the circumference of your wrist and forearm to have them custom sized at no extra charge.

There are two sizes available. Keep in mind it’s best to measure over your clothing to ensure you get the proper size.

The Small are 9″ long on the outer arm, 7″ long on the inner arm and will fit most wrists starting at 6″ in circumference

The Large are 11″ long on the outer arm, 8.5″ long on the inner arm and will fit most wrists starting at 8″ in circumference

Be advised that wax hardening the leather does darken it considerably, so keep that in mind when ordering.

As always, customization is available, feel free to message me for details.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you have any items in Stock, ready to ship?

    We now have a section of in stock items! Everything in this section is available, and will ship within 1-2 business days.

    Why so expensive?

    Our items are all made by hand. We do not mass produce anything, and every item has been designed, tested, and created by us. A lot of time and effort has gone into every item we offer, and we do our best to make sure that everything that leaves our shop lives up to our standards and hopefully yours.

    Can you make a sheath for a knife other than the ones offered here?

    We only offer a few different sheath options, but we operate out of a large brick & mortar cutlery store, so there's a chance we have the knife you're looking for. Contact us to set up a custom order.

    Do your holsters meet IDPA regulations?

    All of our belt holsters meet IDPA regulations, but our shoulder holsters do not.

    Are your leather sheaths lined with Kydex?

    To put in bluntly, if your leather sheath does what it's supposed to do, you shouldn't need to put a different sheath inside of it. Our leather sheaths function very well being made out of leather, and our kydex sheaths work very well without a leather lining.

    Does the knife come with the sheath?

    No. Each item is for the sheath/scabbard/holster itself, no knives, swords, or guns are included with any purchase.
