Special Tsuka (Hasuji Control) Hosomi Sakiboso Tsukabuto Shinai.
Tsubasa Budogu proudly presents its original Shinai models line up, Tsubasa Brand!

Tsubasa Amethyst, HASUJI CONTROL: MOTIONAL TYPE is a Hosomi (thin body), Keichiku Shinai with an original shaved Tsuka (grip) and thinner tip (Sakiboso) to counter balance its center of gravity, shifted due to the shaving of the Tsuka itself. It comes assembled with a hand-sewed Gin Tsukagawa. This Shinai is made exclusively for women size.

Tsubasa Amethyst grants a better notion of the Hasuji (angle of the blade), and after getting use to the grip, it helps to improve the coordination of each hand through the proper use of strength, resulting in a better Shinai motion; letting the orientation be controlled by the right hand, and the power by the firm grip of the left hand.

The Tsuka is round shape and thicker in diameter on the left hand area. And, the right hand area is shaped to be Hakkaku-Koban (octagonal oval). We classify this model first as a "study tool", to comprehend better how to move the Shinai and strike with proper Hasuji. And, after getting the use of the special grip, we think it evolves to become a great multi-purpose model, but with a competitive aim due to its light-weight balance. 

* Recommended for: Training, but once you get used to it would be fine for competition as well, thanks to its balance and center of gravity. Great for a "consecutive-attacks-Kendo style" and for using various techniques combinations from different angles, with the proper Hasuji. 

* SSP Approval: This Shinai follows the actual All Japan Kendo Federation designated regulations.

* The size of Tsuba/Tsubadome set is designated by the Shinai size when the option for adding them is selected. If you want to buy a specific size of Tsuba/Tsubadome set, you need to purchase them as a separate item.

* Assembled Shinai; Leather fittings/parts included.

We make a quality check after the products are finished at the workshop and before preparing the shipment, but in case that something was overlooked or one of the products from another maker has some kind of malfunction, and if you find any trouble with your purchase after receiving it, contact us immediately to help you out. If you think there is a problem after using all the purchased items for a while, you can also write to us, and we will analyze your case to check if we could offer you a solution in the way of repair, exchange, refund or a compensation in case it corresponds depending of the problem. But please be aware that not only all the protective gear that is used wrongly or in extreme situations will be damaged. Due to the normal use (sweat, friction, hits) and to the weather (direct sunlight, dryness, humidity) impacts over time, it is assumed that the condition of the product will decrease. Before contacting us, take the aforementioned into consideration, and if we found out the cause or reason of the problem is not due to a defective product or manufacture error, there will be no replacement, repair, refund or compensation whatsoever. * In case of bamboo and wood products (Shinai, Bokuto, Suburito), designated weight and their surface's condition might change during the shipping due to moisture/humidity changes that may occur while handled or stored by the couriers and while traveling to your place for delivery. Natural raw materials, specially bamboo, might present imperfections such as color change, dark spots and other visible details that are perfectly normal; these do not represent any problem in terms of durability. Also, many of our Shinai have a layer of wax or oil finishing, thus residues may be found on the bamboo. For this reason, we suggest to clean these kind of products with a cloth before using them the first time. And in case of small deterioration on the surface due to dryness, we recommend to put (only on the bamboo or wood areas) a layer of vegetable-oil after polishing with sandpaper, if necessary.
