discuss ninja armour


verbly im not talking to you... im typing there is a differnce. and why do you see the need to anger me? i have done nothing to be catching lip for an outsider...

So the Ninja master won't kill you for posting Ninja secrets on the internet for the whole world to read, but if you spoke to someone you'd be dead?


i dont have to explian myself to you. i am a Jonin and i have no obligation to fuel you silly rant.... bottom line is i know what is real and what isnt, i just didnt feel like having people getting told fairy tales thats all. if you dont like that then the best course of action for you to take is to stop talking nonsence to me and coomet about your own things. thats all im going to say, im not being mean i just dont have time for this silly squabiling

A lot of this Ninja stuff is really boring (the fairy tales you mention), the bits you added about armour were actually quite interesting. But the secrecy and death bits I've heard a lot of times before, and people don't explain how they can be talking about what is real while they're supposed to be ultra-secret upon pain of death...


im not sure why you are so ill-tempered but if you were not personally interested in ninja lore then why did you post in this room in the first place? do you fell as though your purpose in life is to anger others from afar becuase you know that they will never know who you really are and therfore take action? i see a coward in you, these actions you make towards enveloping everyone in misery from out of their reach is foolish and coward-like.

I'm not ill-tempered, you can read the wrong things into plain text. I'm slightly annoyed when people repeatedly avoid answering simple questions by getting huffy around them being asked.
If you said how you can be bound by the code and be talking about this stuff, I'd have the answer I was originally after.


the reason why i can talk about this openly is becuase, weather you believe in Ninja or not, i am an Escaped Ninja which means that if i were found i would be killed, but for that they would need my name and address which i have not given... is that a suitable answer for you? i defected from being a ninja because i wanted a normal life, ok..

That's a good explanation, I'm sure you're quite aware that plenty of kids say things like this (fairy tales again) - you feel secure posting here 'cos no one can get your details out of the site? (I reckon they're pretty good with data security here?)


two words:     Public domain

k i stumbledupon this but am unsure of the topic so i'll just talk about what im after...............i make moccasins and wanted to make some leather tabi. making moccasins is easy,but tabi seem to be made of a sole.and several other pieces based on measurements of the top of the foot.
can anyone give me some pointers as to how to make a pattern for tabi-mocs?

 im back! after over a year of being non active XD

I haven't anything to say except this ;-)


Post thoughtful comment.

Post thoughtful reply with off-topic side note.

Post interesting rebuddle that make no sense at all

Post longer, boring rant mirroring first, adding random links.

post denying statments that also attck you personally.

Post snooty counter attack with veiled reference to superior intelligence. Addend with smile face to imply opponent's immaturity.

posts thinly veiled response about hurting feelings, then notes that i can be immature as im a kid, then posts snide coments about you being mean to a kid.

Post old fogy rant on quality of kids today. Follow up with old-person story starting with "When I was younger..."

post rant about "Welllll, nowadays are different."

post final agreement to disagree and +1 their instructable.

posts Yay to first +1 on instructables, then counterattacks and dissmis' the agreement.

posts request for end of hostilities. realises thats not gonna happen, but doesnt remouve it because its a well written treaty. adds a not very well veiled remork of superior intelect over everyone

posts thoughts about the fact that Tech-king & ducklemon might have a point to ending arguement, then realizes its fun to argue, and continues a pointless rant.

Post Kiteman-like spelling correction of "rebuddle" to "rebuttal".

well you people are all wrong and i will tell you why (vaugely) i happe to know for a fact that as far as new age ninjas go, there IS armour, it consists of hardened cow and rhino hides sewn together with strong scale mail applied in the middle. this is a body suit and ninjas are sworn to a vow of eternal secrecy and are forbidden form talking to anyone, enve their own team members. They do wear camo but it is a material that refracts light naturally and helps to simulate the enviroment around them, it is refered to as a chameleon cloak.

Go on then, amuse me:
"i happe to know for a fact" and "ninjas are sworn to a vow of eternal secrecy and are forbidden form talking to anyone, enve their own team members" -

How do you happen to know this fact then?


first of all you are not "L"  second of all, why would i tell you that. i am uder the same code... like someone comeented earlier, ninja are still around and active in missions, thats all i am going to say

You are of the same code "sworn to a vow of eternal secrecy and are forbidden form talking to anyone"? except us it seems...


and new ninjas are not "hired thugs" they are under the absolute command of a ninja master... if you disrespect him / her they have the right to kill you on the spot and they tell everyonr this in the begining

some times ninjas wore samuri armor but it was expencive. Usualy ninjas wear pesant cloths to blend in or dark blue robes. No armor was the best because ninjas needed to be fast and armor would just drag them down. You don't need armor of no one can find you and attack you.

Ninja might wear parts of samurai armor but never all of it! Plus samurai were usually somewhat bigger than average people.

Ninjas often wore chainmail armour underneath clothing or concealed in the clothing itself. see: http://www.japanese-ninja-armor.com/. leather armour was also common as it made little noise and was lighter than metal armour.

I'm working on some armor now that I made out of plastic paint cans. It's pretty SWEET! When I'm done with it I'll put the inst on here!

In reality ninjas were somewhere in between rogues, assassins and hired thugs. Most of them would have worn armor of one kind or another based on their personal preferences. A moment of silence for duck-lemon and all the dead ninjas. ps. if you disagree with plasmaspy we will send our ninja brethren for you some lonely night. You might have to wait a few months because we have a long waiting list. XD

Does armour really exist for true ninjas? If they were masters of the invisible, they should be able to evade being detected and not weighed down with armour. If they were masters of martial arts, would armour be necessary except for practice?

Exactly. Clunky armor would inhibit a ninja from doing his job. Not to mention the noise generated by it. Ninjas are masters of stealth, not tanks.

their armour would be made from light raw hide leather that is not heavy at all but will protect from some knife slashes just in case they get caught.

Would be made?!?! Aren't you forgetting ninjas haven't been operational for the last couple of centuries?

they still would have had access to leather and have been able to cure it and other stuff.
