Alternative Views:


Mino's design is very unique. Based on antique Shinais, with the KOTO style, it has a straight finish, all through the Shinai (which is opposite to the Dobari Shinais). MINO was based on a Shinai that an old 8 Dan Sensei gave to me. The bamboo is specially treated with BIO Technology for durability, giving a dark traditional look. Very beautiful finish. "It was a big surprise when an old 8 Dan Sensei gave me his Shinai that was given to him by his Sensei, about 40 years ago. This old Shinai had a very different concept than what the Shinais are now days. It even felt that I was holding a real sword. It had a very nice balance, and it did not have that fat Dobari feeling. The Sensei told me that in the old days, Kenshis used to use this type of Shinai. I would strongly recommend our new Koto style Shinai, MINO. As the Kenshi goes higher in ranks, they tend to go into a 'One Shot' style, and I believe that is the ultimate beauty of the Kendo. Win and Hit, instead of Hit and Win." Taro Ariga CEO (Kendo Renshi 7 Dan)

Reviewer: Jong Lin from Cupertino, CA United States  
I like this shinai the first time that I pratice with it.  Quite a good balance and lighter than I think.  Even it is feel light, the strike was vevy solid and precise.  Seem to be aperfect shinai for me.

First Shinai February 16, 2014
Reviewer: Christopher Schroeder from Rio Rancho, NM United States  
This is the first Shinai I have purchased since starting Kendo not long ago. The price is right compared to other websites and the Shinai is just beautiful. E-Bogu was quick to fulfill my order and I ended up receiving my order a day sooner than what they predicted. Super happy with the service and will be shopping here in the future!
