History

Kacchu(armor) is Japanese transitional protective equipment, worn by Samurais mainly during battles using swords and bows.
Comparing to other kinds of protective equipments from all around the world, Kacchu is most unique for its vivid design and colorful appearance.. In the middle age/early modern period, Samurais were in the centre of power, especially during the Edo period when there were no wars, and Kacchu armors were perceived by top Samurais as symbol of of status. As a result, kacchu manufacturing embraced the most state-of-the-art technologies in blacksmithing, leatherworking, painting, metalworking, weaving and various other areas.

To handle kacchu well, one needs to be familiar with the various materials used, as well as the structure of how each part is connected to others centered around the helmet and torso. That is why Kacchu(armor) is also considered as an antique work or art, traditionally craft, and historical treasure.
