BAK: 6mm Eikobudogu USA Signature Custom Bogu Set
BAK (Boost Ability for Kendo) is Eikobudogu USA’s flagship Bogu set, designed by some of Japan’s most experienced craftsmen for Kendoka around the world. From the elegant Bushu-Aizome indigo dyed Futon to the deodorizing and shock absorbing Sorbothane padding, the BAK Bogu set utilizes the finest and most modern materials in the Budogu industry. BAK is the ultimate fusion of traditional design and modern day comfort.
Made to your exact sizes and specifications, the Men features a traditional yet practical 6mm/3mm Gunomezashi stitched Futon - giving the Men an elegant look without sacrificing protection where it is needed the most. Eikobudogu’s signature BAK Mengane features a combination of both solid titanium and a light duralumin alloy, allowing for an optimal balance of weight and durability. Furthermore, designed with the safety of Kendoka in mind, the Mengane - as well as other parts of the set - have undergone crash tests like those used in the automotive industry, resulting in minimal and insignificant damage.
The ergonomically shaped BAK Kote have been designed to fit comfortably from day one, without sacrificing protection with an elongated Tsutsu (wrist joint) like many other modern brands. The inner layer of the Kote feature a specialized deodorizing material, and additional padding has been added to the areas known to be stuck the most. The most innovative feature of the BAK Kote lie in the Tenouchi (palms). The Tenouchi are crafted with an Eikobudogu original Ultra Suede material produced by Toray – a Japanese fiber manufacturer known for designing the material used in modern day ‘Tetron’ Hakama. Ultra Suede is an extremely flexible yet durable material, tested and proven to last longer than synthetic Clarino or leather.
The BAK Bogu set comes with a top quality 50PC-Type Synthetic Do. The Do has been designed with the perfect balance of weight, durability, and most of all – protection. The meticulously hand-stitched Mune and high quality Kurozan leather are features found only in the highest quality Bogu sets. The Bogu set comes standard with our original ‘BAK Honkumo Kazari’ Mune design and 50PC-Type black Do-Dai; however, these can easily be customized with a variety of colors and designs.
The protective 6mm Tare features 3mm Gunomezashi and top quality Aizome deer leather reinforcements in the areas known to ware out fastest. It has been designed for the comfort and movement of Kendoka in mind, supporing the core of the body without hindering the ability to breathe. The Tare is yet another perfect example of the fusion of traditional design with modern day technology and comfort.
