    Default Wisteria handle, on or off?

    Yes for On, No for Off. (Sorry everyone for the inconvenience; mind was adrift and can't re-edit the poll)

    That sirs and madams, is the question. I postponed my purchase on getting a kamisori to fork over a pretty bag of change for a solid navy blue 2 button suit, 3 dress shirts and received 2 ties as a gift. Now that I can focus spreading my money on getting one, which do you like better and most importantly, why?

    Thanks in advance.

    Oh man, I messed up the attached images and it's not in the post, but outside of it. Great.

    I prefer off so I can be sure everything's dry, but if it comes on I'd leave it to keep it original.

    Like all things, rust can build up under the wrap from water, so I see your point in leaving it off.
    If it does come with a wisteria wrap, I can remove it without too much of a hassle, correct?

    No idea. I have only ever had one, an Iwasaki, and it came to me naked.

    Things happen. Much easier to dry a pivot than wrapping.

    I left mine on. I have one with out a wrap and I can definitely say I prefer the rap. It helps me grip more. As far as drying I wipe my lather off. I don't rinse. I would suggest keeping it on at first, if you don't like it turn it off.
