I am looking for a nice and genuine nodowa in order to have one in my collection (end of Edo will be fine).
- What do I have to know about this rather scarce item ? - How can I spot fakes or refurbished nodowa ? - Is there different types ? - Are they really scarce ? - For what function were they worn apart for sheer protection ?
Thank you for your active help
PS : If someone has one for sale, please contact me.
Thank you for your help guys. I will keep my eyes open and try to find some. Dave, thank you for your offer, I will submit to you the one I find in order to avoid fake ones. Anthony, you have a nice one here.
Yes Piers, tell the seller that I am very happy with it. Fits very good to one of my armors. You can also mention that I got a very nice pair of russet suneate so he do not need to look for those, he can concentrate on the Bamen...
I don't know if it will fit my neck but after a close inspection of the picture of the last catalog sent by kino, this one is definitively not in good condition (heavy loss of laquer). Thus, I prefer to skip that one.
