Our choice of rope for the Skorpion high quality mid-range is our 'Tsuyosa' jute, meaning 'strength'. This rope is soft straight off the reel, requiring no wet treatment and only minimal preparation. The single ply rope has a medium to loose lay, is evenly weighted and ties beautifully.
If buying unconditioned rope, the Tsuyosa requires no form of 'Breaking In' other than through use. However, singeing to remove the fuzzies can only enhance this rope if so desired. To finish, use a rope oil or wax of your choice to lubricate the fibres - we of course, recommend SKorpion Tsubaki Oil!
For those of you who like to dye your ropes, the 5mm diameter takes dyes evenly and right to the core. Custom lengths are available on request.
Conditioned ropes will be defuzzed and conditioned using our own secret blend of Tsubaki oil, Jojoba Oil and white beeswax before being baked leaving your rope smooth and ready for use. All ropes are finished with a simple overhand knot.
