'KINJIRUSHI' translates to Gold Seal, and represents the GOLD STANDARD of top-quality Shinai imported from Japan. Each Shinai in the KINJIRUSHI series is made using cuts of premium bamboo, and are built not only for a fantastic balance, but also excellent durability.Each KINJIRUSHI Shinai is carved by expert craftsman with the utmost care and attention.SHIKON is a premium short grip Jissengata Shinai which is not only perfect for elite competitors, but is a perfect choice for those looking for a Shinai which allows for fast, consecutive attacks. SHIKON has been made with the short-grip design in mind, so rather than simply attaching a shorter Tsukagawa (handle leather), the center of balance of the Shinai is set further towards the grip also, so that the balance is optimum for use with a shorter grip.
In addition to the KINJIRUSHI Series Shinai being made from premium cut bamboo, this same quality can be found in the leather fittings too - which are included as standard.
Grip length is approximately 29cm.
