Why the Samurai?

“Why the Samurai?” is a question we get all the time. So we thought we would give you a little background on why we chose the Samurai as our logo and what it means to us.  

We chose the Samurai because of what samurai stood for in ancient Japanese war times.  Samurai were warriors who defended their masters and their property from pillage and theft during the Heian Period. Samurai lived by the Bushido Code, and that Code resonated with our values as a company.  

Here are the the 8 Virtues of the Bushido Code:

  • Rectitude or justice
  • Courage
  • Benevolence
  • Politeness
  • Honesty
  • Honor
  • Loyalty
  • Character and Self Control
