Top Quality TOKUSEN MADAKE Select Shinai - HIDA Size 39 (Complete) Extra Thick Oval Handle


 
Alternative Views:


HIDA is the Oval Grip (Koban Gata Shinai) Madake Shinai from E-BOGU.COM. It has a similar balance as our Dobari Shinais, but the Tsuka (handle) area is shaved down to an oval shape. The balance makes the Shinai feeel very light. "The Oval Handle makes the Kenshis hold the Shinai properly, using the correct Hasuji. Specially for strikes to the Do and Yoko Men, it improves your Kendo. I use it not only for basics practice, but also for Shiais and Keiko, I find it very effective to use our HIDA Shinais." Taro Ariga (Kendo Kyoshi 7 Dan)

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.

5 of 5 Excellent shinai October 12, 2019
Reviewer: Gari from YPSILANTI, MI United States  
Very good balance. It feels light, but the construction is robust, and feels like you have the real katana in your hands.

4 of 5 Feel's Great April 7, 2018
Reviewer: Will from NMKK  
Regular size Shinai I would all ways have to re grip so I would use a Oval or Thick. So when I found this Shinai I was excited to try it out the only down side was it was to thick for my tsuba so I had to file one of mine down to fit. So i would take that in to consideration

5 of 5 balance April 25, 2017
Reviewer: Joe Taylor from Chula Vista, CA United States  
I love the feel and balance to this shinai.  The weight is in the handle making it feel very light.  The handle is a large oval perfect for those with bigger hands, easy to grip while wearing kote.
