Samurai were the military nobility and officer caste of medieval and early-modern Japan.
In Japanese, they are usually referred to as bushi. According to translator William Scott Wilson: "In Chinese, the character 侍 was originally a verb meaning "to wait upon" or "accompany persons" in the upper ranks of society, and this is also true of the original term in Japanese, saburau. In both countries the terms were nominalized to mean "those who serve in close attendance to the nobility", the pronunciation in Japanese changing to saburai. According to Wilson, an early reference to the word "samurai" appears in the Kokin Wakashū (905–914), the first imperial anthology of poems, completed in the first part of the 10th century.
By the end of the 12th century, samurai became almost entirely synonymous with bushi, and the word was closely associated with the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class. The samurai were usually associated with a clan and their lord, were trained as officers in military tactics and grand strategy, and they followed a set of rules that later came to be known as the bushidō. While the samurai numbered less than 10% of then Japan's population, their teachings can still be found today in both everyday life and in modern Japanese martial arts.
All my decals are made from high quality self-adhesive vinyl made in EU which is quite durable and very easy to apply. The vinyls I use are premium casted type... and have special polymers within to avoid cracks and glue stretch marks that other cheap vinyls leave of the surface where they are applied to.. so, they maybe not the cheapest.. but are of good material quality. Each design is also shipped with custom installation instructions.
Please notice that this decal covers only the colored area, therefore it is not a full surface skin.
Also this is easy to remove and does not damage the surface from which it is removed.. neither it
The recommended color for these decals is BLACK, but as per your preference you may choose any other from the available ones on the color chart.
For any other extra item you may add to your cart.. combined shipping will automatically be applied, therefore significantly reducing the shipping costs per unit.
