Featuring our exclusive Katana Grip tsuka style, this Kihon shinai is great for kendoka who like to always know where their hasuji is, without using an oval or octagonal grip. The Katana Grip naturally places your hand into the correct gripping position as well making this perfect for anyone working on their tenouchi and form.
Two alternate sides - one near the grip on the left and one near the tsuba on the right - have been gently shaved down to provide an asymetric grip that mirrors the feel of a shinken or katana.
This shinai coems fully furnished and is made form fresh keiichiku bamboo - a strong and sturdy shinai that is great for regular practice and has a nice standard balance for developing strong kihon.
