Alternative Views:


OBARU is the Oval Grip (Koban Gata Shinai) Madake Shinai from E-BOGU.COM. It has a similar balance as our Dobashi Shinais, but the Tsuka (handle) area is shaved down to an oval shape. "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 OBARU 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.

4 of 5 Quality material, but site unclear January 6, 2022
Reviewer: Micah Scarbrough from Bastrop, TX United States  
Your site was highly recommended.  Shipped quickly.  But, I ended up needing to spend more money then I should have because product details are unclear for beginner practitioners.

5 of 5 Great Oval Handle Shinai September 12, 2011
Reviewer: Jung Kim from NY, United States  
I have been using e-bogu oval handle Shinai for a long time, and this new Tokusen Obaru has become my favorite. By using the Oval handle Shinai, it makes me correct my strikes, because my Shinai used to rotate in my hands during practice.
Great Shinai!
