"This is our newest extra thick Shinai. BIZEN TOKUSEN. We designed this Shinai based on our existing BIZEN and the Shinai that I got from Takahashi Sensei from Kyoto, Japan. Takahashi Sensei and I fought at the 11th World Kendo Championships in Santa Clara, CA. I am sure people with larger hands would be very happy with this Shinai. The most challenging thing about the design of this Shinai was to keep the good balance of the Shinai, although the amount of Bamboo is larger compared to our other Shinais. We tried placing the balance towards the handle side, which makes the Shinai feel light, just like Takahashi Sensei's Shinai."  Taro Ariga CEO (Kendo Kyoshi 7 Dan)

Top Quality TOKUSEN MADAKE Select Shinai - BIZEN Size 39 (Complete)
Features
This is the New Line of TOKUSEN (Specially Selected) Series of our Madake Shinais. The shape of the Shinais is based on our most popular Shinais, but it is made of hand picked MADAKE Bamboos. Each four parts of the Shinai is made of thick meat bamboo, and hand shaved for the best balance.

Our TOKUSEN Shinais are made in our factory with the top level of quality control, and testing for better performance and durability.

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.

Good balance, doesn't last long. May 18, 2016
Reviewer: Gokaden  
This shinai has good weight distribution, and the thick tsuka is very comfortable.

However, I used it only about 15 times in regular practice, and it's already starting to split and crack. I live in a region with normal humidity, and my older dobari shinai lasted much longer than 15 practices.

Good balance October 6, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Buenos Aires, Argentina  
The balance and the thicker tsuka are the main characteristics of this shinai.
Be sure to order a tsuba and tsuba dome because a regular tsuba does not fit.

Great shinais February 10, 2014
Reviewer: Gaetan Corneau from St-Etienne-de-Lauzon, QC Canada  
But handle, exactly as I like, great balance, good price, and fast shipping.
One small thing, though: I ordered two shinais, but I forgot to ask for matching bamboo knots (for later repair) so they don't match.
