Red Osada Steve Rope, straight from Studio Six in Tokyo
This Rope, sold by Steve from his studio is clean and pure and contains no harmful oils. It is soft from the start, needs no conditioning and is a true loose lay Japanese rope. Super intense red with slight magenta tones, made with dyed fibre so colour runs throughout.
At 5 mm it is on the thin side and allows for intricate ties. Using a loose lay rope requires and rewards proper technique.
We are very proud to sell this rope on the tip of Africa and especially happy to offer it at the same price you would pay from Osada Steve in Tokyo.
These days, when you can just message a famous Japanese master and maybe even get a response, it is easy to forget just how radical and influential Osada Steve is. He was there 30 years ago already and his 2- and 3 rope Takate Kote versions are still pretty much the standard. The man is a legend and his rope is just as great.
8 meter, 5mm, JBO-free pure, loose lay, deep-dyed Jute.
We don't bother with conditioning on this rope. It polishes quickly with use and becomes silky and wonderful.
