    Default bujin design closed down

    I just went to bujindesign.com and the company is out of business and up for sale. I've worn their uniforms for going on 10 years now. Anyone have any alternatives of similar quality?

    Thanks,
    Tom Amoroso

    This is my very biased opinion, since I know the owners, but you can try Nine Circles http://www.ninecircles.co.uk/

    If you're ordering from the US you can try http://ninecirclesusa.com/
    They are the US distributor for Nine Circles.

    Moderator, I hope this is not considered spam, but if it is please remove my post.

    It is sad that Bujin Design had to close down...I bought my first kobudo bag from them ~18 years ago and it still looks new!

    In their absence, we recently bought some great stuff from http://www.e-bogu.com - iaido tops, hakama, etc. They seem like a solid vendor.

    For kobudo, I personally prefer buying from Kiyota Co. in Baltimore. I love their bo, jo, and bokken that are made out of Japanese white oak. They have been around for decades, yet surprisingly are still not on the web. Here is their phone # http://baltimore.citysearch.com/prof...ta_co_inc.html

    Default E-Mudo

    I really like everything that I've bought from E-Mudo.com. However, I haven't bought any of their higher end stuff. Their customer service is excellent as well.

    As far as I know, there is no "they" there, it's just Kiyota san. He does business his own way. Don't ever visit his shop unless you are prepared to hang out and talk with him for hours.

    Too bad about Bujin,I had no idea.Yes Mr. Cooper(Jarrett maybe??),E-bogu is very solid,the finest Jo I have ever seen was purchased from them,I always prefer to drive down there,it is in the middle of a highly Japanese populated area,so when it is ramen,Marukai green tea shopping,Shodo supplies etc. time,I stop by E-bogu's warehouse on the way.Very clean as warehouses go,and always on the ball for service,they are pretty much all I deal with.

Just think about your preference and find any company for this reason.
