TAIKAI is made using top quality cuts of Madake Bamboo, and is crafted especially to give excellent balance.
Not only is the balance of TAIKAI designed to keep the weight towards the hands, making the tip feel light, TAIKAI is also made using a special technique of shaving the bamboo staves, known as 'Tate Men Kezuri'. This is where the staves are shaved vertically, to give a thicker profile, allowing the tip be shaved thinner, whilst retaining durability. This allows for a excellent overall balance of the Shinai, whilst still keeping strength.
Each TAIKAI Jissengata Shiai is made from a single bamboo plant, which provides the four slats with the best flexibility and durability.
