Thick-grip Koto-style Shinai - Daigo

Thick-grip Koto-style Shinai - Daigo

Alternative Views:

This Shinai is a standard Koto-style Shinai. The body of the Shinai is close to straight, the weight is evenly distributed along the body, the signature of a Koto-style Shinai. The thicker Tsuka provides a better grip for people with large hands. Choose from Thick (27mm in diameter) and Extra Thick Tsuka (30mm in diameter). (Normal is 26mm)

*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 beforehand, we can do this for you before shipping your order.

3 of 5 Awesome! August 14, 2017
Reviewer: Adrian Park from Wheelers Hill, Victoria Australia  
Delivery was fast and efficient.
Balance is perfect for my needs and the thicker handle feels like I have more grip with my ham hands.

Was, again, 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.
