Top Quality TOKUSEN MADAKE Select Shinai - OBARU Size 39 (Complete)


 
Alternative Views:


OBARU is the Oval Grip (Koban Gata Shinai) Madake Shinai from E-BOGU.COM. It has a similar balance as our Dobashi Shinais, but the Tsuka (handle) area is shaved down to an oval shape.

"The Oval Handle makes the Kenshis hold the Shinai properly, using the correct Hasuji. Specially for strikes to the Do and Yoko Men, it improves your Kendo. I use it not only for basics practice, but also for Shiais and Keiko, I find it very effective to use our OBARU Shinais." Taro Ariga (Kendo Kyoshi 7 Dan)

Our TOKUSEN Shinais are made in our factory with the top level of quality control, and testing for better performance and durability.

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.

High Quality!!! January 26, 2016
Reviewer: Dave S. from Seattle, WA United States  
I'm new to Kendo but am very happy with the quality of the shinai.  The oval grip is wonderful and these are nicely weighted and balanced.  Very high quality.

The Shinai That Works For Me December 25, 2015
Reviewer: Floyd Carrington from East Quogue, NY United States  
In October 2014 I took up Kendo. I had a problem finding a shinai that I liked and fit my hands. Looked at other peoples shinais and bought a couple different styles. None of which I liked. In April of 2015 I bought a pair of these shinais and have been happy with them ever since. December 2015 E-BOGU has a Star Wars sale on shinais and I bought two more just in case I break any.

Obaru shinai December 5, 2015
Reviewer: Jay Howard from Stillwater Lake, NS Canada  
Online chat was very helpful. Shinai were promptly shipped and received and look great (at least to my novice eyes). Looking forward to using them and hope they outlast the shinai I had been buying.

Shinai December 2, 2015
Reviewer: Eugene Ostrowski from Henderson, NV United States  
The Tokusen Madake Obaru shinai feel great. The weight distribution makes striking effortless, despite the additional overall weight.
