Vitaly Kusari - Japanesse chain armour
Kusari was used in samurai armour from the 1270s but particularly from the Nambokucho period of 1336-1392. The rings were lacquered black to prevent rusting and were always stitched onto a backing of cloth or leather. Kusari was often concealed entirely between layers of cloth.
Chain mail is still widely used as protection from shark bites for scuba divers.
This product is crafted from stainless steel with antique finishing.
