The grab is made of cow leather. There are various names such as kip leather and steerhide leather, but the period and conditions until the skin is made, such as "calf skin within XX to XX months of age" or "castrated calf skin" Has changed the name. Most of the cowhide used for Japanese grabs comes from the United States, and some from Europe and Australia. There are only a few domestic products. Why is domestic cowhide not used? The reason is the characteristics of domestic beef. Compared to Western cows, general domestic cows have a smaller body and thinner skin and are harder. Domestic cows have more fat than foreign cows, so they have the image that the skin is soft, but when the leather is tanned and processed into leather, the fat is removed, so only hard thin skin is left. Foreign-produced beef has good fat, low fat content, and thick skin. Therefore, when processed from leather, it is suitable for grabs because it gives a reasonably soft and firm "leather".
However, Ballpark.com is particular about making glove by processing leather from Japanese ancient beef "Kuroge Wagyu (male)" into glove leather. Miyazaki Prefecture, where the head office of Ballpark.com is located, is the home of livestock that has received the "Prime Minister's Award" for three consecutive games at the National Wagyu Festival held every five years. The Japanese black beef from Miyazaki prefecture, which was raised in a blessed and mild climate, has a very good fiber quality.Quality as beef is "number one".. If so, the leather could be processed into a top-class glove "cowhide". ..
What is the difference between "skin" and "leather"? To put it simply, "skin" refers to a state where fat and other substances have not been removed yet, and "leather" refers to a state in which excess materials have been removed and then dried. In short, "leather" is "tanned" to process "skin" into products. This "skin" to "leather" tanning is based on advanced technology and experience. And this "tanning" professional is called a tanner. Tanner tanning transforms one type of "skin" into more than 100 types of "leather"! In other words, depending on the tanning method, the "skin" becomes harder or softer, and becomes "leather" with a different feel and texture. When I met Tanner, which is also known as Japan's best, the skin of Japanese black beef (male) from Miyazaki Prefecture has transformed into a top-class "glove leather". Since Japanese black beef is generally edible, it is characterized by high fat content. Japanese black beef from Miyazaki Prefecture is no exception, and the skin itself contains a lot of fat. However, the best tanner in Japan has given this technique of leaving a proper amount of fat, so that the strength and durability of "leather" can be maintained, and yet "softness", "suppleness" and " Having a "fitness""Japanese beef JB leather"Was born!
The "leather" tanned by the best tanner in Japan is stored in the glove molding factory. Grabs are made by using a “mold” owned by the factory that molds grabs, sewed out from “leather” by a glove craftsman, and then assembling. Technology and experience are also important in this process. In addition, the finish is quite different between the "consistent method" in which all of these processes are performed by one person and the "division of labor method" in which the person in charge is divided by the work process. The glove craftsmen requested by Ballpark.com have the highest technology in the world. All work is done by one person in a "consistent method". By engaging from the beginning to the end of the assembly, it is easy to get the image of the final grab finish, and it is possible to smoothly prepare and adjust the detailed parts and the next process. The highest glove craftsman with unparalleled "achievement" and "technology" that has been involved in the production of grabs used by many top Japanese players so far,"Wagyu JB grab"Is the creator of.

Wagyu JB Grab Maker's Message
Wagyu JB grab uses a method called "non-slip processing with bare hands" in the tanning process. This is a finishing method that retains the natural state of the "skin" before tanning, and is a method to take advantage of the original goodness of tender Japanese beef. With this processing method, Wagyu JB grab has "softness/flexibility" and "fitness" that cannot be found anywhere else.
In order to make the best use of this goodness, the finished grab may occasionally have a few wrinkles and scratches. We do not hide the "wrinkles". Many overseas grabs use a large amount of paint to finish wrinkles and scratches. The large amount of this paint causes it to lose its shape, causing a problem in durability. We have proved that we have adopted a processing method that leaves a "natural state" without lying, by showing "wrinkles and scratches" without being hidden.
When a general user selects a grab, if he sees wrinkles or scratches on the catching surface, he or she tends to lower the grab's rating.For wagyu JB grab, "wrinkles and scratches" is a real testimonyis. Rest assured that there are no concerns about quality.
