Oval Octagonal-grip Koto-style Shinai - Oniyanma


 
Alternative Views:


This is a Oval Octagonal-grip Koto-style Shinai. The oval silhouette of the Tsuka and the edges of the octagonal shape make this Shinai very easy to grip and imitates the feel of holding a "real sword". This type of Shinai is great for Suburi but also for people who have problems with their gripping strength, promoting the proper way to grip a Shinai. Since it's also slightly thicker than a regular oval shaped Shinai, it's also good for people with bigger hands.

The Koto-style shape of the Shinai gives it a very evenly distributed weight and balance, making it preferred by higher level practioners.
