Great product ,the length is a little short of a regular A2 of another brands ,but a high quality and heavy belt.
I love this Brown Belt. It's my second Kanji. I won Master 5 / Light in my Original Kanji Blue. My daughter now wears that belt.
The Katana has a nice texture and width. A1 is a perfect fit for me. It never comes untied.
I hope this Brown Belt will give me the same magic I had with the Blue.
I gave this belt as a gift to one of my students. Amazing detail and quality! Now please restock the black belts! I want one!
I'm into this "grappling weave thing", so i went for kanji brand and found kaze and katana. Same price and not sure if I've read it in a hurry but couldn't see differences on their descriptions. Couldn't find help on the internet either. So i went for kaze: really light but it doesn't feel or look "crappy"! Absolutely! And it's highlight is the embroidery logo! Clean and elegant. But i still needed to know the difference between that one and katana, so i ordered one.
Customer service and shipping to Brazil was outstanding as usual, btw. Katana feels a tiny bit stiffer or thicker than kaze and the grappling weave on katana has narrower rows than on kaze. I mean the Gi like fabric on katana has a less crispy look than on kaze. Katana has a sewed logo wich gets damaged on the borders very easily, something that does not happen with kaze.
Both are fantastic. Keep their knot tied throughout the sparring session.
If you want the traditional look of kanji brand with the name written on etc, go for katana. If you just need a good looking grappling weave belt, kaze should be your choice.
