A luxurious, high quality SILK covered extra thick and wide black belt.
My Tokaido BLH-W 100% silk belt is stunning,the "feel",width and thickness are all perfect,a pleasure to wear.The embroidery is artistic and stylish using an extended Katakana to cope with the "V" in my name. This is a quality product which i'm sure is made to last.A geat choice for good looks and practicality.
A piece of Art if the truth were known ! The quality of this belt is superb. The look and feel make it a pleasure to wear and lots of people have commented on the fantastic embroidery. If there was one downside it is that the belt is so stiff that the ends defy gravity for the first few times you wear it, but once it settles down it hangs great. I promised to treat myself to a great belt when i passed my shodan and i made the right choice with this one.
Received my belt Tuesday, the quality is outstanding, both the kanji and katakana are beautifully embroidered, the best I've seen. This is really worth the investment, I strongly recommend this item.
