SHORT OVERALL REVIEW ON MEN

Sora (Men) offers superb protection, function and aesthetic. Its Gunomezashi long and thick menbuton with kongawaboushi-zukuri stitched in Kon-colored matsuri offers great protection, durability and great range of motion. The titanium mengane adds a bit of weight however offers better protection and balance to the men. The velvet uchiwa gives great comfort with its soft texture and good sweat absorption. Hence, it is great set for practice, grading and competition. A men for experienced player and higher Dan kendoka and as primary bogu.

However, its weight and length of menbuton is not suitable for competitive kendoka that prefer light weight bogu for added edge in competition. It is also not meant for beginner and unsuitable for lower Dan kendoka.
