The finest hand finished Madake Jissen Gata Japanese Shinai.
Madake is the original type of bamboo traditionally used for Shinai. Native to Japan, Madake is a thick, fibrous bamboo with a large flexible cell structure, characterised by its pronounced nodules and clean, consistent finish.
The most popular model for high level competitors in Japan, these pieces are carefully shaped to make them ideal for competition.
In pursuit of the ideal fencing makeup, the weight is distributed mainly through the lower two thirds of the weapon and is combined with a slim Monouchi section. This makes the Shinai very stable, enhancing control of the Monouchi for Tsuki, whilst maintaining the fluid manoeuvrability of a Dobari style.
Fitted with top quality Gingawa leather fittings, these size 39 Shinai are supplied fully assembled and come complete with Tsuba & Dome.
