Point of Braiding is known also by it’s Japanese name, Kensaki (kehn-sah-kee).
When groups of yarns (strands, elements or bundles) are interlaced and a braid is being formed, the center of the braided structure represents the point of braiding. This is where the interlacement occurs and the structure becomes visible.
It will show whether the completed sequence of interlacements has been executed correctly.
Are there missed movements of braid sequences?
Are the braided strands in the correct order?
Verify proper counterweight being used (point of braid should be level with the top of the kagami opening)
This is an example of an incorrect counterweight. Since it is too heavy, see how far below the bottom of the mirror the braid is.
An example of a good Point of Braiding. Note where the POB is relative to the kagami or opening of the mirror.
