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)

Features
This is the New Line of TOKUSEN (Specially Selected) Series of our Madake Shinais. The shape of the Shinais is based on our most popular Shinais, but it is made of hand picked MADAKE Bamboos. Each four parts of the Shinai is made of thick meat bamboo, and hand shaved for the best balance.

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.

Excellent shinai July 15, 2015
Reviewer: Shuugen  
Has the same center of gravity as the koto shinai I've used for several years and grown fond of, but the thick ovular handle is more reminiscent of a bokken or shinken. I've only used it for a short period, but it seems durable.

Same But Different (Shinai) June 7, 2015
Reviewer: Jason Davis from Columbia, SC United States  
Recently I ordered two  "Top Quality TOKUSEN MADAKE Select Shinai - OBARU Size 39 (Complete) Oval Handle". The reason I ordered two shinai of the same style is obvious. If something happens to one then I have another shinai that is identical. This is especially beneficial in the case of a tournament. I can quickly replace one with the other. However. These shinai look the same but they do not feel the same. The center of gravity or displacement of weight is different. One is heaviest below the tsuba and the other is heaviest above the tsuba. This makes for two completely different feeling shinai. If someone orders two of the same shinai then they should be very close to being identical. Everything else I have ordered from e-bogu has been top-notch (excellent). This is my first not so great experience.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Phoenix, AZ United States  
This is a really high quality product. The oval handle is perfect to the grip and the balance of the weight is just right. This is now one of my highly recommended products.
