HKK (Houston Kendo Kyokai) is designing and taking orders for custom SWKIF shinai bags. The material is called sakabukuro (酒袋) or sake sack. The name came from sake brewers hanging nigori (unrefined sake) in the bag to let clean and refined sake to slowly drip out. It is basically heavy duty cotton canvas. The color of the bag is blue and all the writing and emblem will be in silver / white stitching (as illustrated in SWKIF shinai bag) The shinai bag will cost $120 and will have your name embroidered on it.
If you are interested in purchasing a bag, please submit a check of $120 payable to Houston Kendo Kyokai to Ashley M. by Sunday, March 12, 2017.
