- Nov 1, 2009Hello! Thanks for your quick answer!
I have a picture of a definitely armoured "short kote" here:
For the other one (the tube-like, as you called it), i had only seen it in manga and the like until i saw this picture:
Then i began wondering if they were real thing after all. But maybe you are true and they were not armoured at all, although every time i saw them they looked rigid, as if made of steel.

I had seen something similar on tv shows, with samurai in everyday wear with only these small protections on. So my question is, are this fency 2oth-century inventions, or did they really exist? and, if so, has anyone got the patterns for them?
Do you have pictures?
I think you are talking about the sleeve-coverings- -like tubes that go
over the ends of sleeves. Those seem to be popular with people who
travel or do manual labor, probably to keep their garments from
getting too dirty. I'm trying to think if I've seen those armored, or
not. Or do you mean a full sleeve that only has armor over the hand
