Top Quality TOKUSEN MADAKE Select Shinai - OBARU Size 39 (Complete)


 
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 shinai June 28, 2021
Reviewer: Lorenzo Zago (RB LZ) from Brescia, Lombardy Italy  
I don't normally use Koban gata shinai, but a student of mine wanted to try them and so I tried them too. The average weight is close to 530g but they are well balanced and give the feeling that they are lighter

5 of 5 Oval Grip November 17, 2020
Reviewer: Mike from Export, PA United States  
Love the feel of the oval grip.  Feels great, oval grip is a personal preference.  Improved control of the shinai compared to round grip in my opinion.
