Armour with an upper leg portion featuring plates with dangling bear skin, offering similar durability to the cuirass while remaining lightweight. The ostentatious use of black lacquer and gold leaf creates a vivid contrast in the design. The Warrior of the East was the armor employed by Honda Tadakatsu, one of the four great Tokugawa commanders. As leyasu's right-hand man, Tadakatsu saw bitter combat on the battlefield, yet emerged without a scratch. He was dubbed the Warrior of the East by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Dark-colored scales laced with black dread forms the basis of the design, with gold embellishments in prominent positions radiating power.
