Manufactured by Nihon Kendogu Seisakusho or NKS - one of Japan's only workshops capable of producing 100% MADE IN JAPAN Kendogu - HIMUKA utilizes master quality Japanese materials while featuring a traditional and understated design.

The ultimate fusion of traditional and modern materials, HIMUKA is reinforced using some of the most sought after Japanese Bushu ‘Aizome’ dyed Orizashi cotton, and premium cuts of genuine 'Aizome' dyed deerskin. It features a very flexible and protective 8mm Futon, with 4mm Gunomezashi (finer stitching) on the Mendare. This, fused with the tight 2.5mm stitch pitch allows the Bogu to flexible and protective in the strike zone, yet still gives the ability to form an attractive overall shape.

Utilizing an improved Eguri (wrist angle) and Tenouchi (palm) design by NKS, HIMUKA presents the culmination of generations of expertise in crafting premium Kendo equipment.

The full Orizashi design makes the HIMUKA Kote lightweight, and quick drying. The palms may be upgraded to genuine smoked deerskin, or produced as standard with synthetic leather allowing for extra durability, and an accurate feel of the Shinai. Finally the 8mm stitching makes for a thick, cushioned Futon, giving a fantastic level of protection.
