Metallic Nano Puzzle Kato Kiyomasa Armor Model

Japanese warrior armor self-assembly kit

Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the second of Japan's great unifiers, was one of Japan's most powerful warlords, being one of his seven bodyguards, known as the Seven Spears of Shizugatake, meant that you had proven your value in battle many times over. Kato Kiyomasa, the lord of Higo Domain in Kyushu, was one of those seven great warriors, and even today his name is one of the most recognizable from the warring states period of the 16th century. Even more recognizable was his armor, of which the Metallic Nano Puzzle Kato Kiyomasa Armor Model is a faithful replica!

Kiyomasa's armor is famous for its particularly long kabuto helmet (called a nagaeboshi-nari), decorated with two big circles on the sides. This gave the daimyo the look of a giant snake, which terrified his opponents and is, of course, part of the Metallic Nano Puzzle Kato Kiyomasa Armor Model! Use a pair of nippers and needle-nose pliers to separate the metallic parts in the kit, put them together using the illustrated guide, and you then have a beautiful nagaeboshi-nari kabuto as a great piece of decoration for your samurai shelf!
