Straw Test Cutting Mats: 70cm - Pack Of 20

£33.33 ex VAT
£40.00 inc VAT

Makiwara or rolls of straw mats are a traditional material for creating targets for test cutting.


These mats are rolled into various thicknesses, soaked in water for 3 days, and then allowed to dry for a day before cutting. The resulting target is supposed to then accurately represent the consistency or resistance of the human neck or limbs.


Simple to prepare, an average target would consist of 3-4 mats held together by cable ties for a professional finish.


Now supplied with black edgings, these mats measure approximately 180cm x 70cm.

1st time I’ve ever attempted cutting and had prepared a number of these Tatami mats in readiness. Bound tightly with string they performed very well cutting nicely.
Very pleased with them given the cost. Arrived quickly.
10/10 from me.

Great Tatami. Fast delivery. Cut well but a little short if you want to do multiple cuts. But for the price they are excellent

These wara mats are very good quality. They have a strong grassy smell and turn green when soaked. I rolled a single mat and two mats, soaked for 3 days and then used for tameshigiri. They are large enough to make up to 4 cuts and are affordable. Very good for regular practice.

Too short
Width 70cm produces a roll of 70cm height, which is fairly short, hence the low price. Otherwise does the job

Straw Tameshigiri (Test Cutting) Mats
Arrived in quick time as usual. Not tried the mats as yet but they look well put together, no doubt will provide good testing material.
