The men of the 1.8bu Black Label from Shogun Kendogu is a premium hand-stitched item, ideal for the discerning kendo-ka seeking quality, flexibility, and a stylish appearance. Built with #8000 grade cotton, a special blend of sheep wool and cotton, and Fujioka smoked deer leather from New Zealand, the unique ‘koshi’ composition in the Black Label men ensures durability and facilitates a long lasting shape. Through our research of hand-made kendo equipment we have found that a 1.8bu stitch is the ideal width to provide protection whilst also remaining flexible – and the more it is used, the better the fit becomes.
