Oval Octagonal-grip Dobari-style Shinai - Oniyanma

Oval Octagonal-grip Dobari-style Shinai - Oniyanma

Alternative Views:

This is a Oval Octagonal-grip Dobari-style Shinai. The oval silhouette of the Tsuka and the edges of the octagonal shape make this Shinai very easy to grip, feels light in your hands and is easy to handle. 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 Dobari-style shape of the Shinai directs the weight away from the tip, making it feel lighter and easier to handle in your hands. This Shinai is recommended for use in Shiai.
