Kumihimo Braiding

I made my first takadai for a local artisan who makes
beautiful guitar straps and other braided products. The
takadai is made from Sugar Maple which is harvested here
in Maine from our renewable forests. Maple has been used
for furniture and home accessories for hundreds of years
and is known for it's strength and durability. The sword,
seen to the right, is used to keep the braids tight and
uniform. It is also made from maple and is light, strong,
and smooth to the touch.

The takadai is easily assembled and disassembled for
ease of storage or traveling to a show. It will be
shipped to you with simple instructions for assembly.  

Twenty six pin Koma are included.

Takadai: $500
Sword:      $28
Shipping:  $30 to continental USA. Sword only $5.25.
