The Tozando Group was recently pleased to open one of Japan's first specialist Shinai Workshops. Located by Kyoto's famous Heian Jingu, and the Kendo 'Mecca' that is the Butokuden, visitors are met by our expert Shinai craftsman, Mr. Manabu Akutsu. Mr. Akutsu was originally a professional violin maker, and was well known in Japan for the quality of his craftsmanship. View an article of the Shinai Workshop on Kendo Nippon magazine.

Until now, the chance to select the size, shape and materials of one's own Shinai has been reserved for those living in Japan, only being made possible by complicated and expensive links to Japanese-speaking Kendo Shops.

*Please note - If you select the Shikumi option the Shinai is supplied assembled with all leather parts and Tsuru.

37 and 38 for ladies are available only for "Ultimate Hand-Cut Made-in-Japan Madake".

PRODUCTION TIME : As each of these deluxe Shinai are crafted by our expert craftsman, Mr. Akutsu, please allow approx. 3 weeks for delivery.

Shinai workshop September 19, 2012
Reviewer: Lewis Gale from Cardiff, South Glamorgan United Kingdom  
The options available on this product are brilliant. You can vary from a good quality shinai to a top quality product that dominates the market in terms of quality and performance. The support I recieved was excellent and my madake shinai is the best I've ever seen or used. Quality worth every penny.

Kyoto Madake Oval Koto September 19, 2012
Reviewer: Ken from United States  
This product is pretty much a Nihonto when you close your eyes. Everything is perfect, even down to the small details of the engraving. Recommended to those that can afford it.

Very good shinai September 19, 2012
Reviewer: Nikoley Koch from Duesseldorf, NRW Germany  
I ordered two large grip koto dzukuri with keichiku bamboo and shikumi to give it a try.

Delivery was really fast and with good service. I can firmly say the best shinai I had so far and I had a lot in over 24 years of kendo. The grip is 30mm which is not specified in the shop. So be aware of that. I allready suggested to add more choice regarding center of gravity and combinations of grip styles.
