    "DOBARI -LARGE HANDLE-" Style Shinai

    Similar to the dobari style shinai, by increasing the diameter of the handle, the center of gravity is shifted even greater to the handle area. Once you compare a regular shinai to this shinai, you will be surprised how light this dobari-think handle shinai feels! Recommended for tournament/shiai.

    "KEICHIKU" Bamboo

    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.
