"REGULAR" Style Shinai
The regular shinai is the most frequently used form of shinai in the world. This type of shinai is usually mass produced, resulting in a greater variation in balance from one shinai to another. As a result, the price is relatively low for these shinais. Everyone from children, beginners to the intermediate players use this in practice.
Majority of shinai's out there are made of Keichiku bamboo. Keichiku bamboo is roughly 7-8cm in diameter and are harvested all year round in Taiwan. The high density fibers is said to contribute to the long life of the shinai. However, during import, or the storage they go through some dry conditions which may remove some of the natural oil and or moisture from the shinai resulting it easy to develop slivers on the shinai upon use. All our shinai has given special oil treatment in factory before shipment that can extend the life of shinai and increase the durability and resistance from being destroy by dehydration.
