SHORT OVERALL REVIEW ON KOTE
Myojo (kote) medium kotebuton length with synthetic kongawaboushi and its good structural strength ensure great protection. The deer fur stuffing near the finger tips is also good. However, its kera is slightly on the softer part, might just offer slight protection on that area. The position of the thumb bent inwards gives it great shinai handling, however its kera and based of thumb distance is slightly apart. Overall this kote is suitable for practice and shiai. A good kote for experience kendoka hoping for a primary kote or secondary kote.
However, due to its slightly soft kera might not be appropriate for beginner that is practicing with hard hitting partner or female kendoka.
