This LIMITED SPECIAL EDITION version of the Original KendoStar Model Ultimate ALL-PURPOSE Shinai has been especially designed to be the one Shinai that is perfect for ALL occasions, and perfect for ALL levels.
It features a good balance, without being brittle, so it can be used for both practice, and for tournaments. The balance is also designed to feel like it is lightweight, and manoeuvrable, but without being overly light at the tip, meaning it doesn't encourage scrappy Kendo, or light hitting. Instead, it is easy enough to wield, even for multiple attacks - but also delivers a solid feel, so it is also good for those who like to perform powerful, one-shot style techniques.
Top quality leather fittings are used, which includes a single folded Tsukagawa (grip). This is to keep the price affordable, but at the same time it is made from genuine Japanese leather, from Nara prefecture, so despite being a single folded, the durability is not compromised.
Made using deep smoked Bamboo, the smoking process infuses the staves with carbon, which is said to provide additional flexibility, helping to prevent breakage. Often referred to as 'Bio', these smoked Shinai present a deep brown colour, and are currently popular with several of Japan's top Kendo practitioners.
Designed to be the perfect all round Shinai, that you can use in ANY situation, at ANY point in your Kendo career.
