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.

With Sankei’s Keichiku Shinai, you can still get the quality and value in return to bring out the best of your Kendo.
