These protective components were designed to protect The Samuari's lower legs and shin. Reaching their development in the 14th Century, Suneate Guards were made of leather, bamboo wood and iron plating. Different variations ranged in size and length. Often heavily reinforced, in theory – several attack procedures (uses for and against Samuari), involved leg attacks. The Suneate Guard was somewhat effective against Sword and Polearm slashes. They were held in place by silken cord strap attachments. Leather connecting versions known. Mounted Cavalry Units were known to use the larger of the varieties.
