Thick-grip Jissengata Dobari-style Shinai - Issen

Alternative Views:

This is a Thick-grip Jissengata Dobari-style Shinai for Shiai. The Kensaki (tip) is made slimmer to promote the feeling of speed when swinging your Shinai and to keep the balance of the Shinai towards the Tsuka, which also makes the Shinai feel lighter to handle.
The thick grip makes the Shinai easier to grip for people with larger hands. Choose between Thick (28mm in diameter) and Extra Thick (30mm in diameter) Tsuka. (Normal is 26mm in diameter)

*Please note that due to the thick grip, the Standard Tsuba will not fit out-of-the-box, you will have to adjust the size of the Tsuba manually. Alternatively, if you send us a note in-beforehand, we can do this for you before shipping your order.

Thickest Grip Shinai February 4, 2018
Reviewer: Paul Westblade from Lakeland, Tennessee (TN) United States  
This shinai is weighted perfectly.
I have large hands and like the fatter grip.

Pretty good August 14, 2017
Reviewer: Adrian Park from Wheelers Hill, Victoria Australia  
Delivery was fast and efficient. I really like having a thicker handle for my ham hands and the weight is very nicely distributed for early morning training.

Was a little disappointed with the Tsubadome though. You had an option that said you would stretch it to adjust for the 30mm handle.
Even though I left a note, it didn't happen. Frowny face for that one.
Otherwise I'm happy with my purchase.
