Recommendations for a weapons case.

Hi all.

I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a high quality and durable weapons case. I've had my Bu Jin weapon case for... 10+ years and it is holding up great, but unfortunately, those are not available anymore. I am looking to give a weapon case as a gift and open to any suggestions or recommendations. Looking for something that can hold your typical jo/bokken/tanto and maybe one or two extras.

Requirements:

1. high quality
2. durable
3. something that can be presented as a gift
4. for jo/bokken/tanto, and maybe a few extra though not required

Thanks.

-Kevin

Re: Recommendations for a weapons case.

Kevin, I specialize in custom bags of cotton canvas that can be decorated with a band of coordinating print fabric. They are not luggage grade but do very well for daily transport to and from the dojo. My site is zanshinart.com Have been doing this over ten years now.
If you want a more luggage grade custom bag such as cordura, or something in leather, I recommend you google Nevada Budo Tailoring (On my iPod I can't juggle windows or apps to check exact name or url).

Kevin,

I purchased one of Janet's weapons bags as a gift for my Sensei, and it was definitely one of the best purchases I have made. Very high quality and very beautiful at the same time. I have one of her dojo bags that I love, and will be getting a weapons bag from her as well. Highly recommended!

OK the other folks I recommend - for more luggage type bags but, like mine, custom made to your specs - are http://www.budonevadatailoring.com/

I don't know much about this new company but the weapons bags look pretty good.

They make a very nice bag, a bit pricey but very nice. Reinforced bottom and strap. Plenty of room for bokken and jo in main compartment and tanto in the small pocket.
