Guido, thank you.  I have hope that my only kabuto may one day be restored.


I was also deeply moved by this story:

Thank you Guido.


Nishioka san is an amazing armor maker, one of the very few left. I was lucky to visit his workshop multiple times. His very kind wife makes the odoshi by hand so she can exactly copy what is necessary during the restauration process.


See another short article here (it has been shown here before I believe): http://www.japantime...a/#.WXCkcyN95GE

He has a pupil in the UK, Robert Soanes, also a very fine craftsman.
Robert is also a member of the Japanese Armor Society.
