Dear Friends,

I have a rather nice kabuto that begs to have its  shikoro re-laced. The elements - ita?- are all there but unattached from one one other. Is there anyone on out side of this pond who does this work? Alternatively, is this something a person can undertake himself?

Peter, odoshi lacing is very difficult.

Justin has just completed a kabuto, I can vouch for him, so I guess he is your man.

 

The question to identify which style you have

Well, it looks like the NMB has worked once again. I will reach out to Justin. In fact, however, that may take a while. We are in the midst of relocating and just had our "estate" sale yesterday. I sold essentially no Nippon-to related gear, but still be had a passel o'crap to offer and I'm tired. A guy can accumulate a lot of other stuff while scouting for Nippon-to.
