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 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.

Exellent Product April 11, 2017
Reviewer: Morgan Phillips from Sudbury, ON Canada  
Enjoying the oval type grip very much so, I find it helps immensely to improve upon my do strikes, having that extra directional awareness via the handle orientation. Though as previous customers have pointed out the tsuba may require some minor modification as they are typically intened for the standard round grip
