Koshitsu and Shirotake


Koshitsu” is a product that has achieved a smoother surface and longer lasting durability through “high temperature and high pressure treatment” and “impregnation of natural plant wax” developed by our company based on our vast experience over 100 years of history. It is characterized by the apparent density of the needles, the glossy surface, and the slippery feel. And above all, it is our original lineup that no other company offers.

Shirotake” is a bamboo knitting needle that allows you to enjoy the natural texture of bamboo. “Shirotake” is a bamboo knitting needle with less manufacturing process than our “Koshitsu” knitting needles, so it is softer and you can enjoy the natural bounce of bamboo. The carefully polished surface and needle tips are smooth and provide for knitting comfortability.

Features of each and how to choose:

Points to choose! :

The major differences between products are “hardness”, “slipperiness” and “durability”. If you value “hardness” and “slipperiness,” choose “Koshitsu” If you want to emphasize the natural “flexibility” of bamboo, you can use “Shirotake white Bamboo”. In addition, “Koshitsu” is more durable because of the “high pressure treatment” and “natural plant wax impregnation” process. However, the above are just general points, so please choose the knitting needles that suit you best.
