description

Samurai warriors don’t get wet. They dodge the raindrops using ancient techniques handed down to them by some doddery old bloke who looks like Mr Miyagi off The Karate Kid. Probably. Unfortunately, when it’s really bucketing down, even a full-on shogun master needs a bit of help – and here it is in the deeply stylish shape of the Samurai Umbrella.

Ideal for ninjas, noble warriors and anyone who’s OD’d on badly-dubbed kung fu movies, this elegant nylon brolly features a realistic samurai sword-style handle, so you can protect yourself from the wrath of Kuraokami (that’s the Japanese rain god, stupid) without looking like a dorkish ‘nana.

Simply withdraw this finely-crafted rain repeller from its shoulder-mounted nylon scabbard, depress the push button mechanism and you’re ready to do battle with the elements. You can even pull a few martial artsy moves in between downpours. Try doing that with one of those nincompoopish curvy-handled jobs. Hi-Yaaa!

For some unfathomable reason there’s something strangely comforting about walking around with an umbrella/sword hybrid. Just gripping that elongated hilt is enough to make you wanna squeeze into a yellow jumpsuit and practise your Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique. ‘Please boss, I was just trying to swat a fly.’

With all the great weather we enjoy here in Blighty (ha-flippin’-ha), a decent umbrella is essential. Ergo, one that looks like an ancient weapon is an absolute must. So get ordering, but hurry: our highly renowned master supplier (now posing as a sushi chef) has taken a blood oath to construct and dispatch each Samurai Umbrella only to those he deems worthy of its power.* Sayonara!

*We might have made that up. Actually we did.

Got the full length umbrella for my boyfriend at Christmas and he absolutely loved it! Delivered very promptly and packaged very well so could not be damaged. Brilliant present, and great quality. Would recommend to anyone.
Emma, Newtownards - 24th January 2014
This umbrella always gets comments and turning heads. Security have never been a problem, went to Wimbledon and simply showed the guards and they were quite impressed actually! Simply the coolest umbrella around and coupled with silicone spray it actively repels rain, super ninja style! The system is very strong and incredibly resistant to high winds, the handle naturally allows you to hold it very securely. Its 100% awesome.
Luke Grossmith, Salisbury - 24th December 2012
The best item I have ever spent money on! that includes food! I was very impressed with the speed of the delivery considering its quite close to Christmas I still had it the next day, unfortunately I haven't had the chance to use it yet (Ironic since I live in Wales) Plus the conformation email I was sent made me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside, so thank you FireBox! p. S. The pack of sweets I found in the package? Nice touch!
James Evans, UK - 9th December 2012
This is a superb product. The stem is is like a carbon fibre and really strong for those extreme weather days. I really love it and although I have never been stopped I've had a few funny looks when I'm in the centre of town, although those looks soon change to one of jealousy one it starts to chuck it down!
Mickey, Lancashire - 8th September 2012
Had the full length version for almost a year, great umbrella and a big head turner when you have it strapped across your back, been stopped quite a few times by both admirers and security. Main reason for this review is due to the FB customer service! I recently contacted them about a part of the umbrella that had gone missing and I didnt really expect them to have the part, but they searched for it and hey presto a week later I received the part I needed!! Excellent!! Cant thank you enough!!

Firebox says: Glad we could help Paul!
I recently bought this for my brother. However, he lives in a different state. Do you know if airport security will allow me to take it? I know it sounds like a stupid question, but they have confiscated necklaces and keychains that were shaped like weapons from me before, so just asking to be safe.
Xander, Ohio - 17th July 2012
Firebox says: We really are not sure Xander, who knows what airport security is like? We should imagine you would be fine. However you may want to contact the airport you travel from first.
