How are Yoroi-gata Kote different from normal Kote?
Last Updated: 2018-07-18
Yoroi-gata Kote feature different kazari ito stiching on the head of the kote.  These braids form two lines that go down the length of the grip, not jsut across.  This changes the feel of the Kote; rather than a mitten like texture it feels more like an articulated gauntlet.  Some Kendoka find gripping more comfortable ina Yoroi-gata and can apply tenouchi more naturally.
