Samurai were a elite class of warriors who were supposed to lead their lives according to the ethic code of bushido ("the way of the warrior").
Strongly Confucian in nature, Bushido stressed concepts such as loyalty to one's master, self discipline and respectful, ethical behavior.
During the Edo Period, the sumurao stood at the top of the official hierarchy of social castes, followed by the farmers, artisans and merchants.
There were hierarchies within each caste. All samurai were forced to live in castle towns and received income from their lords in form of rice. Masterless samurai were called ronin and caused minor troubles.
As such, the roles and responsiblity of sumurai decreases, and the importance of martial skills declined. Many of the samurai became bureaucrats, teachers or artists.
In 1868, Japan's feudal era came to an end, and the samurai class was abolished.
S.T. Dupont’s Samurai Limited Edition Neo-Classique Limited Edition pays homage to the greatness of samurai spirit by taking inspiration from the splendour and sophistication of their katana swords.
