TOKUSEN MADAKE Select Shinai - KUNIMASA Size 39 (Complete)

Alternative Views:

One of our best selling Shinai, KUNIMASA, now in TOKUSEN Series. This Shinai holds the same balance and characteristics of the KUNIMASA Shinais, made with the Select Bamboo. The KUNIMASA is a Dobari Shinai, with a fairly thin grip. Making it easy to control, with the weight closer to the Tsuka. "KUNIMASA 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't had the courage to use the Shinai that Sensei gave to me at practices, but from the feel of it, KUNIMASA has a simmilar balance and feel of his Shinai. You will love it!" - Taro Ariga CEO (Kendo Kyoshi 7th Dan).

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.

39 465-500 Dobari 2.1cm 4.5cm 2.7cm 2.5cm 63 cm

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.

Amazing right out of the box. October 30, 2013
Reviewer: Benjamin Kang from Torrance, CA  
I never right reviews, but after holding this shinai I had to.

I received this shinai yesterday and i finally got the chance to take it out of the wrapping and I must say that this shinai is amazing. Right when I held it in my hands I already knew that I was going to love using this shinai. Aesthetically it is very beautiful and very well balanced. I cannot wait to use this in the dojo.

Thank you much, E-bogu for an amazing shinai. I love it so much I am thinking of buying three more!
