Our deluxe Shudo Kote are made at our in-house workshop in Iwate, Northern Japan. Made by our experienced craftsmen, these feature improved quality materials and additional core padding. You can choose between orizashi or full indigo deerskin versions depending on your preference and requirements. All of the herikawa is also done in indigo deerskin and the tenouchi use smoked deerskin leather. The combination of high quality materials and exacting craftsmanship result in unbeatable protection and amazing responsiveness.
