素懸威 Sugake Odoshi
What is Sugake Odoshi of Samurai Armor?
Sugake Odoshi is a type of Odoshige of lacing small plates (Kozane) not one by one in detail, but at intervals, sparsely. It is a simplified version of Kebiki Odoshi. It began in the Nanbokucho period and became common in the late Muromachi period. Also, with the emergence of ""Iyo Zane"", which has a shallow overlap, and ""Ita Zane"", a single plate, there was no need to densely lace the cords, hence this method of lacing was created.
