You might have come across the name Esinem in connection with my performances and teaching in London and worldwide. Let it suffice to say that I have a lifetime's intimate experience of rope and, in the last ten years, I have become engrossed in the Japanese art of kinbaku. So far, I have been fortunate enough to benefit from some tuition from some of their top masters: Arisue Go, Kinoko Hajime and Osada Steve. All this has given me a wealth of experience to judge what makes good rope.

I also know how hard it is to find good rope at a sensible price. It is my mission to bring you the best possible products at the keenest prices, where ever you are. To this end, I have searched high and low for the best rope. Whilst I was able to find very good standard twist rope, Japanese style rope proved prohibitively expensive. Finally, I found a supplier who would work with me to perfect an affordable copy. Thus was born the Asanwa range, a high performance rope that wouldn't break the bank. I was amazed by how close the first version was to that which I'd bought in Japan. The latest version, Asanawa Ichiban, raises the bar with a whole range of improvements. These include a far higher strand count for better longevity, a reinforced 5mm rope, higher quality fibre and greater smoothness.

You can be assured that our pursuit of the Holy Grail of rope will continue as we tweak it. Let me know what you think as all feedback is helpful. If you don't like my rope, tell me and we can do something about it as I do everything myself, right down to treating the rope. If you do, I'd still like to know but, better still, tell your friends!
