"This is our newest extra thick Shinai. BIZEN TOKUSEN. We designed this Shinai based on our existing BIZEN and the Shinai that I got from Takahashi Sensei from Kyoto, Japan. Takahashi Sensei and I fought at the 11th World Kendo Championships in Santa Clara, CA. I am sure people with larger hands would be very happy with this Shinai. The most challenging thing about the design of this Shinai was to keep the good balance of the Shinai, although the amount of Bamboo is larger compared to our other Shinais. We tried placing the balance towards the handle side, which makes the Shinai feel light, just like Takahashi Sensei's Shinai."  Taro Ariga CEO (Kendo Kyoshi 7 Dan)

Our TOKUSEN Series Shinais are made from a batch of selected Top Quality MADAKE Bamboos. We carefully hand pick the selected bamboos, and each bamboo goes through a rigorous inspection process.




These bamboos are then cut into correct sizes, dried and stored waiting to be transformed into Shinais.


Shinai Making process:

Heat and pressure are applied to the bamboo pieces, in order to make it softer and to be adjusted to be straight.


Each Bamboos is hand placed on a machine to fix the shape.



The Bamboo is placed on the cutter, in order to make the shape of the Shinai.



Then the Bamboo piece is placed on a sanding machine to produce the 45 degrees angle.



Another sanding machine is used to give the touch to the corners of the bamboo pieces.



Then the 4 pieces of Bamboo are placed together and inserted into another sanding machine for the final touch.



Final detailed waxing of the Shinai to give a nice luster to the shinai.
