Kendo Hand & Wrist Protector
This Kendo Hand & Wrist Pad is destinated for the practitioners who suffer at each strike on the back of the hand, the wrist, forearm or who want to add protection to their wrist in order to not get hurt. As the pad is less thick on the wrist, it doesn't change the movement when you swing the Shinai. The elastic bands at the hand allow the protector to be firmly fixed on your hand without modifying the way you hold your Shinai.

Product Information & Size Chart
High-end Deluxe Smoked Shinai
All our Shinai are available as a unit piece or as value packs (2 or 3 pieces). As shipping is included in prices, important discounts are offered for value packs.
Smoked Shinai are called this way due to their smoky appearance visible on the Take (bamboo slats). This is due to the treatment they receive during the production process. The slats are first heated at high temperature in order to fill the small pores of the bamboo with its own resin. Once solidified, this same resin provides the Shinai with better resistance against the harms of humidity enhancing the overall durability of the weapon. Consequently, this Shinai tends to be slightly more rigid than its standard counterpart but still more flexible than the carbon fiber made models. This product turned out to be well appreciated from Kendoka searching for a solid and durable Shinai.
classic-style smoked Shinai has a classic balance and shape. They consist of a standard kendo weapon which the durability is enhanced by the smoked treatment it undergoes during the production.
Dobari-style Shinai consists of a weapon with a larger body than a classic-style Shinai, moving the center of gravity towards the Tsuka "the handle". Often coupled with the Jissengata-style providing a thinner tip to the weapons, these types of Shinai are perfect to emphasize the work on speed for some specific strikes such as the "Koteuchi".
Kotogata smoked Shinai or "traditional shape" in English, consists of a "straighter" Shinai than other ones. The Haribushi (the main knot of the Shinai) is made thinner on this model, spreading evenly the global weight on the whole sword. This little specificity makes the Shinai seem heavier yet surprisingly comfortable to wield.
Assembled in Japan from Taiwanese Keichiku bamboo, this product is only available in size 39. When the assembled option is selected, this Shinai is provided with a Tsukagawa made from tanned leather (grip handle) and a white Tsuru.
