Osada Steve’s Rope, straight from Studio Six in Tokyo.
This Rope, sold by Steve from his studio is clean and pure and contains no harmful oils.
He calls it 'The best rope money can buy' and it is hard to disagree.
This is a true loose lay Japanese rope. At 5 mm it is perfect 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 required basic skills. The man is a legend and his rope is just as great.
8 meter, 5mm, JBO-free pure, loose lay jute. While conditioning is not necessary it does make the rope lovely so we offer it as an option. It polishes quickly with use and becomes silky and wonderful.
