Unique helmet decoration made with Japan's highest technology
Master craftsman, Sanemasa Bessho
A one-of-a-kind product made with Japan's highest technology. Sanemasa Bessho is a lone armorer who stands out from the rest.
The technical strength woven through metal engraving and metal forging techniques produces exquisite pieces. Gorgeousness within strength. Solid like no other
It will be a piece of art that will stand the test of time and be beautifully displayed forever.
Japan's highest level of skillful and delicate metal engraving
The kuwagata stand, the round metal fittings for the flaps, and the hem metal fittings are all formed by drilling a 0.7mm hole in each location and then cutting and cutting the holes with a scroll saw.
Unlike drilling holes using a general etching process, it is thick, deep, and has high accuracy in detailed areas, resulting in decorative metal fittings that are finished with great attention to detail.
It is made using a metal hammering technique that involves repeatedly hammering out copper plates to create detailed leaf patterns and shapes. Because each piece can only be produced by hand, it is a work that reflects the artist's passion.
The delicacy, almost like an accessory, is a beauty that can only be expressed through authenticity.
