Hosomi Tsukabuto Shinai.
Tsubasa Budogu proudly presents its original Shinai models line up, Tsubasa Brand!

Tsubasa Gold is an all round Shinai made with Taiwanese bamboo (Keichiku), proven to be strong and flexible, therefore quite durable (specially by oiling it when necessary) thanks to its high density of fiber, which grants a good balance of hardness and flexibility. This model comes assembled with a double Toko Tsukagawa.

Each piece of bamboo is shaved to have a thinner overall body (Hosomi) but with a 2mm thicker Tsuka (grip) and a little bigger Do (protrusion above the Tsuka), shifting its center of gravity closer to the handle, so you may call it a Jissengata or competition-type as well. However, it is not a Dobari, neither a Sakiboso (light weight tip) Shinai. We just think of it as an easy to use, light-weight feeling, multi-purpose model.

* Recommended for: Fast pace Kendo style, versatility, quick movements. Particularly good for those who always take the initiative and aim to move before the opponent. Also for those who want a very versatile Shinai, which can be used in normal Keiko as well as in Shiai.

* 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.
