  Top Quality BIO Treated Shinai - "KAI" Dobari Style (Bamboo Only) Size 39

Alternative Views:

"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.

Bio treated KAI dobari shinai May 4, 2014
Reviewer: Jong Lin from Cupertino, CA United States  
The balance is great.  The color of shinai is real a beauty. I love this shinai and used it for two years of prarice.  The only thing that I concern about this shinai is it seems not as durable as kenja.  It will crack after half years of pratice.  I bought two of this shinai and kept changing the crack pieces and two shinaini make me last for two years.  Not so bad.

My good shinai April 27, 2006
Reviewer: T. Chan from NYUnited States  
If the bamboo shinai and the carbon shinai were to have offspring, this would be it. Actually, it's quite good for shiais after a couple of uses.
