Imori stands for alpine newt in Japanese. The handforged blade without fuller (Bo-Hi) is made of 1045 carbon steel (which is not stainless), the blade collar is brass. The fittings are black, decorated with the golden newt. Grip-wrap is Katate Maki-Style (War-wrap) made of blue cotton, under which real ray skin is underlayed. Two dowels (Mekugi) fix the blade in the grip. The Imori Katana will be delivered in a collector`s box.
The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
