Need help to determine how much odoshi for yoroi
- I will make an educated guess but I would also like to get experienced
I am focusing on the dou and kusazuri right now. Here are the stats of
the armor I plan to lace.
Dou (odoshi: sugake(mogami style), new style okegawa)
Front Tateage(3 lames): 7 sugake pairs per lame
Front Nagagawa(5 lames): 13 sugake pairs per lame
Front Munaiita to top tateage connection is by nawame anchor lacing
Rear Tateage(4 lames): 8 sugake pairs per lame
Rear Nagagawa(5 lames): 14 sugake pairs per lame
Rear Munaiita to top tateage connection is by nawame anchor lacing
The fifth nagagawa lame will connect to the kusazuri by nawame anchor
Kusazuri (mogami style)
Each Kusazuri have 5 sugake pairs with a total of 6 lames per kusazuri
set and a total of 6 sets.
The kusazuri attaching to the nagagawa lame will have nawame anchor
For the size of the lames I follow Anthony J. Bryant's Patterns and
according to the spacing for sugake lacing I follow the 3/8" spacing.
Please ask any questions so that you can give an accurate guestimate.
