These great value Smoked Shinai feature a large 'Dou' section, placing the balance close to the hands, making the tip feel light. This makes them very easy to maneuver, and perfect for multiple, sharp strikes.
The smoking process infuses the staves with carbon, which is said to provide additional flexibility, helping to prevent breakage. Often referred to as 'Bio', smoked Shinai present a deep brown colour, and are currently popular with several of Japan's top Kendo practicioners.
Excellent for tournaments use, this style is the choice of many of Japan's competitive Kendo practitioners.

This Shinai really can withstand more punishment to be honest and it's very light

Beautiful Shinai - in line with everything promised in the advert!
Tsuru needed slight adjustment.
