The Black Label Pro Tare is the epitome of protection and craftsmanship, offering kendo practitioners a hand-crafted, durable and comfortable safeguard during rigorous training and matches.

More Details

The Black Label Pro Tare is constructed with a bo-sashi desigm, using #8000 grade cotton for a resilient and long-lasting form. The '1-bu, 5-rin' hand-stitched futon, richly imbued with natural aizome dye, provides a tactile quality that sets it apart. The Tare is further reinforced with navy blue deer leather in the heri and kumo-kata, lending both aesthetic appeal and functional sturdiness. With its soft obi design, it ensures a secure and lightweight fit around the waist, allowing for full mobility without sacrificing protection. This Tare is a crucial component of any set, when only the highest standard of safety and style will do.


✔ Shipping is included in the list price.

✔ This item comes with our industry-first 'Wear & Tear' Warranty. 

Buying Custom Items 

As a bespoke creation, the Black Label Pro Tare provides a level of fit and comfort unrivaled by similarly priced off-the-shelf items. Constructed from scratch for each customer, please anticipate a lead time of 3~4 months from payment to dispatch. Due to the customised nature of this kendogu, precise body measurements are essential. For guidance on how to measure yourself for this custom-made item, please follow our detailed instructions. To the best of your ability, please upload one document (i.e. PDF) with all measurement photos attached. We recommend that you seek the help of others when measuring and taking photos. If the craftsmen are unsure about the place/position of the measurements, we will double check with you before commencing with the build (you don't buy custom gear everyday, so we do everything we can to be thorough with sizes and measurements!)
