The Tokuren possesses an almost perfectly straight profile from kensen to tsuka, flaring only slightly at the base. This supreme koto shinai has an even balance all the way down its length. It cuts through the air incredibly quickly making it perfect for large and final strikes. It is especially good at closing down the centre line and striking Men. It is constructed four incredibly even and dense staves that when assembled form a cross when viewed from the tip. This construction gives the tokuren its compact and slim design.

Japanese Madake bamboo is widely considered the finest material for making shinai. slow growth results in a dense grain that is very durable as well as providing excellent feedback from strikes. This especially noticeable on a koto shinai, like the Tokuren - strikes resound definitively, encouraging crisp and positive kendo.

Named after the infamous elite Kendo squads of the Japanese Metropolitan police; the Tokuren is a shinai for those that want to execute the perfect strike.

The Tokuren's tsuka diameter is 26mm and without any leather fittings it weighs approximately 480g.

A bargain August 19, 2018
Reviewer: Minh from Hanoi, Hanoi Vietnam  
Half the normal price, free shipping, superb balance and madake quality. What else can we expect? Obviously the best shinai I have ever had.

Had I known this model was so good, I would have purchase at least a 3-item pack. I get only 1, and am kind of regretting right now!
