Kumokiri is the unique model which does not have any nodes at all. Thomas & Thomas once experimented their beautiful model “Nodeless”. This model is inspired by them but done by totally different method. “Nodeless” cut the node section and glued perfectly as if it is one cane. Kumokiri has no nodes, but no glued. There are so many different bamboo species in Japan. Kumokiri use the bamboo which has the longest length of node to node. Four pieces model only.
