"TOKUSEN MADAKE NADESHIKO Shinai is the Women's version of the KENJA Shinai. KENJA Shinai was based on a Shinai that was given to me by Kim Kyung Nam Sensei. I really liked the balance, of the Shinai, so I decided to make a women version of this Shinai. In the past, many women Kenshis asked me if it was possible to make a women weight Shinai, with think handle. This was a challenging task, as the women Shinais is lighter than the Men Shinai. We wanted to keep the weight close to the regulation weight for Women, not making it too heavy. After many trials, we successfully came up with this NADESHIKO Shinai. If you like a thick grip Women Shinai, this is the one."  Taro Ariga CEO (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.
