    • SWORDS, ARMOR AND BOWS, OH MY By Cari N. & Owen F.
    • 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 .
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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 .
    • 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.
