Note: Gold is nearly impossible to tarnish or antique. We have followed a traditional process to fake an aged patina. However with gold being gold you can remove this patination by over cleaning.
About our Kanamono: We have taken great care in ensuring that our level of kanamono is of a higher grade than those currently sold in japan. The reason for this is that Japanese kanamono is made fro the reproduction armour market and is not intended to be used on real armour. Our kanamono has been moulded using real items from real antique armours. We have commissioned three companies to make this happen. A speciality silversmith creates a lost wax copy of the original, this is then passed to a military metalworker who cleans up the items and prepares them for our goldsmith to hard plate.
