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. We also have a lighter version of this Shinai, which is very popular among Older Age Kenshis. The Shinai has the same shape and looks as the regular 39 Shinai, but it is about 20 - 40 grams lighter than the regulation Shinais (The regulation weight is 510 grams when assembled with the leather parts). It is an alternative Shinai for older Senseis that do not complete at official tournaments, and is looking for a lighter Shinai. It can also be used by adult women, that wants a robust Shinai. 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.

Shinai's May 1, 2015
Reviewer: Tyler Davis from Irmo, SC United States  
I ordered 3 shinai's and could not be happier with them, I love the oval handle one as well as the other two.  I use to use a 38 but got a 39 in these and they work so much better.  Took them to practice and was amazed at how well they worked and my strikes were quicker and better.  E-bogu never fails to surprise me, buy all my equipment form them.

Reviewer: Yuri Dobryansky from Woodside, NY United States  
Just amazing. Thick leather, thicker bamboo beautiful balance on the ISSHO. MUSHA and KUNIMASA feel great too. E-BOGU you surely met my expectations and exceeded in quality. Now the only thing I must do is try them out.

Arigato gozaimashita.

Kamakura Chokuto shinais February 18, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Albuquerque, NM United States  
Just wanted to thank you for your suggestion of the Chokuto shinais.  I have used Bizen for many years and also work with Tosa.  From the description, I was expecting something closer to Tosa than Bizen and was most surprised to find I could do everything with the Kamakura Chokuto that I do with the Bizen.  The feel and balance are superb and in a parallel test tonight found myself preferring the Kamakura.  These are excellent shinais that will have a place in my shinai bag from here on.  The only other  comment would be that 2 of the 3 I would rate as excellent, the third did not have quite the same balance.

The quality of the leather kit varies June 3, 2014
Reviewer: DCPan from Seattle, WA, United States  
I am generally very satisfied with the quality of the bamboo.  However, the variation in quality of the tsuka leather bothers me.  The Musha came with the W-type tsuka.  The two tenchi comes with the low-end single loop tsuka.  Had I know, I would not have bothered to get the "complete" shinai, as I feel those leather parts aren't worth the money.  I wish they would bring the hand-stitched tsuka back.
