As the title says, how much could Samurai armor withstand? I keep hearing about the cutting power of the Katana, but i really want to know for example how many sword slashes or arrows the armor could handle, before it was ruined or the fighter was wounded. And if so by how much? If the sword does manage to cut through at the very least a little bit, could the warrior keep fighting? Also could the armor be hidden with clothing or something to that extent?
