Used often in Iaido, but also other budo, the kaku obi secures your dogi firmly as well as provides a place insert swords and a firm wall to breath against. Traditional kaku obi can be somewhat laborious to tie, so this kaku obi comes pre-knotted and with an attachment that allows you to wind it and secure it in a second. Made in the heart of Kyoto's weaving district, Nishijin, this is still made in the traditional manner despite its modern twist. Approximately 240cm x 9.5cm.
