An extra thick and wide (4.5cm) belt. The highest quality 100% silk black belt for the master black belt and elite karateka alike, offering "the look" as well as "the feel" and outstanding durability.
Fades beautifully over time to give that "experienced" look craved by many karateka.
The ultimate in luxury!
(Note: 100% silk refers only to the covering. The core is 100% cotton.)
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.
I recently received this belt as a wedding gift......It is the most beautiful belt I have seen. I have been training for 29 years and have owned a few different black belts such as Arawaza, Kamakaze, Shereido, and Tokaido. This belt is by far the Best. The gold embroidery that was sewn is beautiful. I have received many, many compliments from my students and from other instructors about this belt. Also the customer service was superb to say the least.....I would definitely recommend this belt to any serious instructor who is looking for top quality!
great belt with fantastic embroidery! maybe the best in quality you can get anywhere! really thick and solid. huge difference to "normal" belts. the silk coating looks just fantastic!
