Date Masamune was a skilled military tactician and one of the most dominant Daimyo during the end of the Sengoku Era (warring states) through the early Edo Era (peaceful states).  Although known for his military feats, Date Masamune was remembered for his prominent and trademark crescent moon maedate (helmet crest). He was maybe made more notable due to his missing right eye, giving him the name dokuganryū (独眼竜), or the “One-Eyed Dragon of Ōshu”.  The Date clan primarily used a unique style of  gomai-do (5 section cuirass) which have become known as Yukinoshita or “Sendai Do” named after the modern city of Sendai, Japan in which Date Masamune had founded. This style of samurai cuirass is based on a “yokohagi-okegawa” do design which features ito-mono plating.   It was a popular style of armor because it offered many different options that would change the appearance. It was very robust and comfortable to wear.
