Crafted with precision, the Ishizue Kote is tailored to enhance the martial prowess of kendo practitioners, offering both customized fit and enduring quality for intensive training.
Meticulously assembled in Japan, the Ishizue Kote are constructed from #4000 grade cotton, featuring the revered 'Kazutaka cut' for a snug fit and exceptional wrist mobility. The filling, made of synthetic cotton, is engineered to absorb impact while maintaining lightness, providing protection that doesn't weigh down the hands. Clad in durable orizashi fabric, these Kote are designed to last through the rigors of daily practice. With four options for tenouchi, or palm material, including the option for Fujioaka deer skin, kendoka can select the level of grip and durability that best suits their style and needs. These Kote exemplify the Ishizue Set's commitment to affordable quality, blending traditional hand-craftsmanship with the requirements of modern kendo training.

Buying Custom Items
As a bespoke creation, the Ishizue Kote provide 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!)
