Alternative Views:

This is the Size 38 version of our most popular Ibushi Shinai KAI. Weight is approximately 495g and the length 46in/117cm.
"KAI was based on the Shinai that Miyazaki sensei gave to me during his visit to the USA. When I held his Shinai, my impression was how light his Shinai was. I asked if this Shinai had over 510g and his reply was "Of course!". The balance of the Shinai is so exceptional, that makes the Shinai feel so light. So far, I have not had the courage to use the Shinai that Sensei gave to me, but KAI has a very simmilar balance and feel of the Shinai Miyazaki sensei gave me. You will love it!" - Taro Ariga CEO (Kendo Renshi 7 Dan).
The bamboo was specially treated with BIO Technology for durability, giving a dark traditional look. Very beautiful finish. The shape of the shinai is very simmilar to our popular KUNIMASA shinai.

Fantastic February 25, 2009
Reviewer: Juan Carlos Gonzalez from Pineville, NC United States  
I just got this shinai yesterday. It got here just on time for practice. I used it yesterday and it felt great. I love the color and the feeling. It's a little tiny bit heavier than my old shinai, but that's exactly what I wanted because that will make me become faster ^_^

I am delighted with my new shinai, I highly recommend it, it's very strong!
