Hirota Belt B-602 Special Silk Black Belt
A beautiful belt. I've owned many belts including Tokaido. After 20 years of training I decided to reward myself with a top notch obi. This belt is absolutely amazing. The material, stitching and workmanship are a cut above anything I've owned. It's extremely hard to set the knot at first because of the silk being slippery and the belt being so thick. But wetting it and tying the knot on helped to set it. After several training sessions it has started to settle in. I've no doubt this obi will last me the next 20 years.
