As Shirasaya refers to a special sword mount, which was formerly used for the gentle keeping the blade. Especially in times of peace, the blades were kept in it perfectly protected. The unpainted Magnolia wood absorbs the moisture inside the sheath, leading them to the outside and thus protects the blade from rust. Many Shirasaya were provided with a "Sayagaki", an inscription, which gave information on Smith, Origin and classification. On the streets of Japan, the inconspicuous outfit was no handle and guard, especially in the late 19th Century use. At the time of the emperor performing Samurai swords banned. The Shirasaya mount, which saw a wooden sword and wooden stick was very similar, a clever way to wear the sword still unnoticed.
Each Shirasaya Katana original John Lee sword comes with a seal and a certificate of origin.
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.
