In my kendo dojo you have to use them, even though they're not strictly necessary for what you're doing.
They're necessary in kodachi no sambonme in the Nihon Kendo Kata, and if you're doing the "new" bokuto-ni yoru kendo kihon waza keiko-ho, they'll save you a lot of pain in the tsuba-zeriai part of tsuba-zeriai kara no hiki-do.
