The Korean traditional style has two predominant ring types, this is the "male" variant, called the Sugakji. In use, the thumb is kept relatively straight, vaguely like the Manchu, however unlike the Manchu a tapered strip of leather or a wedge (not included) is pulled through the back of the ring to tighten fit. The string is placed at the base of the "male" protrusion from the side of the ring, and the index finger curled over to hold it. Release is accomplished by simply relaxing the hand. 

A tapered strip of material, typically leather, is used to tighten the ring's fit. This ring style is designed and size-adjusted to work with it. It is simple enough to make, and while we feel leather is the best material, cloth or a rubber wedge can be used as well. Cut a strip of leather about twice to 2.5 times the total length of your ring, and 1-1.5mm thick. At it's wide end it should be approximately the width of your ring. The narrow end should be 1/3rd the width of the fat end. Stitching, or a leather adhesive, can then be used to attach the thin end to the thick end forming an interlocking loop with the ring's aperture. A more detailed tutorial is available on our BLOG. In use the thumb can be inserted into the ring past the thin part of the leather. The leather loop can then be rotated to the wide portion to create a snug fit. 

We size all our rings on a virtually continuous spectrum for a perfect fit. No longer do you have to live with set sizes made for a hypothetical thumb. Measuring your thumb accurately though is still difficult, which is why we strongly recommend our customers order a set of three closely sized rings. More information can be found by clicking the Sizing Information link on the banner at the bottom of the the page. Please note the Sugakji is sized with the expectation that the user will add a tapered leather loop or equivalent.
