Top quality Seikon Dyed Do Himo (4 Pieces)

In Japan there is a way of ranking three items by Sho-Chiku-Bai (Pine, Bamboo, Plum), Pine being the highest. We have graded our top quality strings in this matter.

Sho (Matsu): Pine Evergreens live long, young, and healthy lives. The pine symbolizes faithful friendship which resists all trials.

Chiku (Take): Bamboo Bamboo represents Honesty. When a bamboo is cut, emptiness is found inside. Nothing evil is hidden within. The bamboo is the symbol of the application of discipline and the man who remains loyal in all events.

Bai (Ume): Plum The Japanese plum flower stands for beauty, nobility, and courage. This is because the plum flower puts forth blossoms while the snow is still on the ground. The plum tree flowers before all the others.

These himo are long so they can be used by people of different sizes. Cutting and tying your himo to your dojo's specifications is often seen as an important part of kendo.

Way too long February 20, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I have purchased this item before from e-bogu and never had any complaints. But the last time I bought these do himo, they are way too long. At every keiko, my sensei scolds me because my do himo are too long. This is the first time e-bogu failed me. Time to find another vendor.
