The Keichiku Shinai, made of Keichiku bamboo is of a less quality compare to the Madake. Keichiku compared to the Madake is more widely available in locations of Asia. Keichiku are usually a lot younger and the composition of the alignment of the tiny grains in the bamboo are less fine compare to the Madake. Most of the Shinais that are sold a majority are Keichiku Shinai because it can still hold quality compare to the cost of a Madake Shinai. Like the Madake, Keichiku Shinai from Sankei are made of the top percentile of each seasonal harvest, and this is what distinguishes Sankei Keichiku from the rest. With Sankei’s Keichiku Shinai, you can still get the quality and value in return to bring out the best of your Kendo.




Jissen Gata class Shinai is known for a thick Haribushi (body of the shinai) and thin Kensaki (tip). This shifts the center of balance of the Shinai towards the Tsuka (Handle), and give the Shinai a sense of weightlessness as the Shinai sits comfortably in your grip.
  • Made of Keichiku bamboo.
  • Normal size handle for the general population.
  • All handmade and well balance.
