  • 1. SWORDS, ARMOR AND BOWS, OH MY By Cari N. & Owen F.
  • 2. INTRODUCTION
    • When most people think of a samurai, they think of a warrior.
    • Samurai warriors were also scholars.
    • The thing that makes people think of samurai as warriors is their weapons and armour.
    • But they do not wear their armour all the time but they almost always had their sword with them .
  • 3. A SAMURAI AND HIS SWORD
    • A samurai’s sword is his soul-Tokugawa Ieyasu
    • The sword was so important that if a samurai lost his sword he lost his honor.
    • A samurai slept with his sword under his pillow while on campaign.
    • Though a samurai’s most important weapon was a bow the sword was the deadliest.
    • Only after a samurai was completely out of arrows would he draw a sword.
  • 4. SAMURAI BOWS
    • Bows were called Yumi
    • Bows were nearly as tall as the samurai wielding it.
    • Made from wood, bamboo, and rawhide bindings
    • The bow string was made of plant fibers and coated in wax.
    • Arrows were made of bamboo.
  • 5. SAMURAI ARMOUR
    • Samurai armour was very individual and unique.
    • Made of many little plates of armor instead of one sheet of metal.
    • For protection on the head they would have a large metal helmet that looked like a large metal bowl.
    • For protection on the head they would have a large metal helmet that looked like a large metal bowl.
  • 6. A SAMURAI WITHOUT ARMOUR
    • During formal occasions at the daimyo’s palace, the samurai would wear a combination of wide hakama (trousers) and usually a formal jacket.
    • This combination is a formal form of the kamishimo.
    • The two parts of the kamishimo were the same color and print and had the samurai’s mon on the breast and the back .
  • 7. CONCLUSION
    • All of these things were very important to samurai.
    • The sword, the bow, the armour, and the other clothing, was all a part of their life, their lifestyle, and them.
    • The armour was very important for safety and it also showed rank in society.
    • Obviously, these things were all important to samurai and therefore they are important to learn about.
