      Fraid so. Of course, you only need a tachi obi if you're wearing a tachi. The
      tachi comes with one, so it's all part of one thing. You only have a koshikawa
      when you're wearing a quiver, obviously. The one you *do* need is the uwa obi,
      which can be a squire's belt or just a big muckin' sash.
