If you're looking for the rope you've seen in some of your favourite Sugiura Norio-images, you've found it.
This is the rope commonly referred to as OGAWA. It has been the choice of rope used for years by Naka Akria, Nawashi Kanna and many others, also Tamandua and countless others in the West.
We are happy to offer this at the same or better price than probably anywhere in the world.
Extremely soft and supple, this is the real thing and a true medium loose lay Japanese style rope. It requires proper technique and when cared for it will polish and patina into a lovely rope with the same authentic look and feel.
In addition, it is priced reasonably, so you can stock up or replace as necessary.
As always, our extensive conditioning process with organic jojoba, tsubaki oil and beeswax leaves this rope immaculate, with beautifully defined twist, fuzz-free and soft with no scratchiness at all and most traces of JBO removed, well worth the cost.
This rope does contain some JBO. If you choose the unconditioned option, or if you have hyper-sensitive skin, you may have to process this further to get it as clean as you like. It's not difficult and we will provide instructions on request. We recommend the conditioned option, or consider Sudo Gold, a JBO free rope.
