These are designed by myself after having been frustrated for many years with the thinner Japanese caps. The Chikusing cap is made of medium 5 oz. leather designed to with stand the impact of a direct drop that can fracture the blowing edge of the shakuhachi. It is designed to form fit any standard 1.8 shakuhachi, which is around 1 3/8” in diameter more or less when measure across the top. You can request a smaller or larger size when making the payment. The default cap is shipped in Dark Brown or Black.

Zen saying for Perry.
