TOKUSEN TOKACHI is our newest model in our Madake Shinai Selection. For people who has purchased E-BOGU Shinais in the past, this, this Shinai is in between Tosa and Kunimasa. I is a Koto Style Shinai, with a little thicker Handle that extends all the way to the tip of the Shinai. Some people say that the Koto style Shinais is more tip heavy, but due to the balance throughout the Shinai, you do not feel much weight at the tip, as the other Koto style Shinais.

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.

A little tip-heavy, as I expected, but sturdy and well-made.  Looking forward to practicing with them.  Great deal on buy one, get one 1/2 price.
