The traditional and often desired appearance of a hand-stitched set is captured by the Black Label set. 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. 

We have used #8000 grade cotton for the Black Label, and the futon is a special blend of sheep wool and cotton. This unique ‘koshi’ composition not only ensures durability, it also facilitates a long lasting shape. 

Genuine Fujioka (aizome) deer leather is used to reinforce the head of the kote, and the same high quality leather is also used for the palms. True of all kote in the Shogun Kendogu range of equipment, our original “Kazutaka Cut” ensures optimal fit and ease of use from the outset.

Simply, the 1.8bu Black Label from Shogun Kendogu is our premium hand-stitched set, and is ideal for the discerning kendo-ka seeking quality, flexibility, and a stylish appearance. 




For those who prefer the hand-stitched look, but still require the flexibility and protection found in every set of Shogun Kendogu brand bōgu, the Black Label is now available with full custom options and the Shogun Kendogu 3 year repair warranty. As this is a hand-stitched custom made product, please expect a 14-16 week wait from the date of payment until the date of dispatch on items of the Black Label.
