Style: Dobari Gata
Grip: Thin [25 +- 1 mm and up Diameter]

NAGISA BESSAKU was specifically designed by one of our staff, Nagisa Komorida 4 Dan (2014 All Japan University Women Champion) for her own use. It is a Dobari style Shinai, with the weight towards the handle. The handle is more on the thin side (approximately 25 mm diameter), with a thicker Dobari portion, and it gradually thins as it goes to the tip. Nagisa prefers thinner Shinais for more accurate strikes and easier maneuver of the tip.

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.
