The Hikari kote are available as stock items, unlike regular tezashi bogu, this means they can be shipped to you soon after you place your order. No need to wait 6 months to enjoy the quality of tezashi bogu. Even though made to stock each piece of armor is carefully crafted by hand and uses genuine indigo-dyed deerskin for all the reinforcements and edging leather. These kote feature a single namako and oji wrist design to make it easy to grasp the shinai. The tenouchi leather is smoked deerskin for a soft, but durable luxurious finish.
