TOSA is one of e-bogu.com Top Quality MADAKE Shinais. The shape is between the KUNIMASA and a KOTOGATA Shinai. "It took me a long time to come up with this Shinai. In the past I have created Shinais based on Shinais that I had and liked. However, TOSA is a totally new Shinai, which I created from nothing. I spent a lot of time because this Shinai was created working directly with the craftsman, after making many prototypes. The handle portion of the Shinai is medium thickness, with the right and the left hand thickness is about the same diameter. The TOSA BESSAKU is not a Dobari Shinai, nor a KOTO Shinai. I am sure you will like it." Taro Ariga, CEO e-bogu.com, Inc. Kendo Kyoshi 7th Dan.

Top Quality TOKUSEN MADAKE Select Shinai - TOSA Size 39 (Bamboo Only)

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.

39 Thick 465-500 Chokuto 2.3cm 3.9cm 2.8cm 2.6cm 63 cm
39 Extra Thick 465-500 Chokuto 2.3cm 3.9cm 3.1cm 2.7cm 64 cm

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.

What a deal September 17, 2011
Reviewer: Takeshi Yamamoto from Oregon  
This is my favorite Shinai, and this is such a great deal! It is almost the same price as the practice Shinais. This time I ordered all 3 different grips. The thick ones are good too.
