Tigerskin Greaves Description
Leg guards made from two half-round plates of iron that come together to form a cylinder, decorated with metalwork and tiger skin. The "tateage" that protect the knees are made of small iron plates stitched together like a tortoise shell. They are part of a set of heavy armor said to have once belonged to the mythical figure, Acala. It was bestowed upon Taira-no-Sadamori by the Imperial Court, and has been a great treasure of the Taira clan ever since. When the Taira clan was wiped out at Dan- no-Ura, this armor was believed to have disappeared.
