This shinai of high quality has an oval handle. This promotes a proper hand position while striking. Weighing only about 525 g, it is light and thus facilitates a fast handling of the sword. Its centre of gravity lies closer to the handle, thanks to its Dobari shape. The bamboo is of AA quality and the handle deluxe.
The Shinai is delivered with Tsuba and a Tsubadome. The tsuba may need to be adjusted by yourself.
