Someone I met on Facebook was nice enough to send me some leather. It's rough and unprepared at the moment and will require work to get it all the same width all the way along but I have a purpose for it. I recently fell in love with one particular type of katate maki and have seen it used exclusively on tensho style tsuka which as far as I can tell are usually of the rikko or hourglass shape.

This leather has the right dimensions to be used on a full same wrap in the katate style. It's not a very popular style but you may have seen it before. Here is a picture of a particularly nice katate style..

And because I'm not completely ignorant and I feel peoples work should be appreciated, here is the website link to this persons exquisite work as well http://www.sword-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=17112

So.. Thank you to the kind person who sent me this ito, it will be put to good use. :)
