Precautions for using Mako

When you first use Mako, you may feel that the movement of the bamboo blades are not so smooth due to the strong friction between them. It may be a little difficult to use in the beginning, but you will feel more comfortable to use each time.

The bamboo blades will become smoother as they dry out, but they will also loosen against the frame. In this case, please insert additional bamboo blades little by little from both ends.
