With regular use, kote, the gauntlets worn by practitioners of kendo, or Japanese fencing, will wear down where the fingertips grip the sword. Suppliers of this specialized athletic equipment will repair these holes, sometimes for approximately $24.00 + shipping and handling both ways. This will leave the martial artist without equipment and unable to practice, and can also be a drain on the wallet. These holes can be quickly and affordably fixed with a leather patch made from an inexpensive polishing sham found at most auto supply stores, leaving the martial artist with no excuse to miss out on practice or risk painful splinters or bruises to their fingers.
