While the traditional bamboo shinai have problem with splitting, and cracking, Hasegawa's innovative shinai made of carbon graphite and high performance plastic, almost never have these problems. With durability 30 times higher than bamboo shinai, carbon shinai have been authorized by the All Japan Kendo Federation.

*Hasegawa's warranty is good for the domestic purchase in Japan only and is not applied on the international mail order purchase. Thus, Tozando does not exchange and/or refund for any broken Hasegawa carbon graphite Shinai regardless of how it was used and handled.

Search No More This is the Shinai, this the store! August 16, 2014
Reviewer: Erick Motta from Michigan - United States  
Look for many years for an affordable price for Hasegawa Shinai and the only way to get something around $200 was asking friends to bring from Japan. Now Tozando has them, and its and excellent deal(15% off).

Regarding the quality and performance of the shinai, It depends on usage(hitting Mengane dents it and cracks starts there) and how much of a heavy hitter you are. I have friends that have theirs for more than 5-7 years with no problems. Mine, on average last about 2 years.

The only Downside I have found to Hasegawa is repairing them. spare strips alone cost almost half of the cost of a new shinai; so I choose to buy complete units and make the traditional Franken-shinai with the spare pieces of the Broken ones.

Finally, regarding the risk of paying only and not receiving your Stuff or endless calling because your stuff never arrive(as with the Korean Guys) is not an issue here. Tozando delivers fast and accurate!

Carbon Graphite Shinai - Excellent September 14, 2013
Reviewer: J.P. Arriaga from Naucalpan, Estado de México Mexico  
A very important element for a good training for beginners or advanced is to have the right equipment for my safety and of my peers. Knowing where to search and how to choose is the key of everything.

I´m Ni Dan in Kendo and determined to buy a Graphite Carbon Shinai in Tozando buth with truly feel of fear for buying online, the shipping implications and the un knowledge of  which accessories will be necessary.I found Tozando, who fortunately guided me in all steps to acquire the perfect Graphite Carbon Shinai well-furnished to my need, durable for daily training and resistant for tournaments.

So far I am very happy and completely satisfied with my purchase.

A good buy comes from view, continuing with a click and ends with a strong workout!

Excellent shinai July 6, 2012
Reviewer: Dmitriy Stolyarov from Saint-Petersburg, Russia  
I am a beginner in kendo, only 4 kyu. I think this is an excellent choice for those who are just starting in kendo and breaks on the Sinai in a month. When you're a novice and train with beginners, high consumption of bamboo shinai is provided to you. I really like this shinai.
