Kind of small as far as shinai go, and something inside started rattling after a little rough sparring. Not the worst in the world; they haven't broken yet.It would help if True Swords would indicate the size (i.e. children's, women's, men's) for these items. I'm pretty sure mine were sized for women; most shinai I've handled were larger..
Very good as I expected. I own a few other Shinais' and this has the best quality. Alot of people say there pieces of it break but thats just because there not using it right. So far i've use my Shinai during martial arts training against 10 other people and not one thing has broken yet.
Just received this in the mail and I think its great looking. Authentic and useful for training. I hope to get some use out of it during my theatrical plays or even just using it in dance sessions. Awesome True Swords. Much Appreciated.
I bought 3 of these in total and so far they work great, very durable to impact damage although the red strings tend to fall off. On two of the Shinai's the hand guards don't secure tightly and just fall off but other then that its a great buy. xD
This is a very nice Shinai. Arrived in great condition, excellently put together, very crisp, nice clean look. Only issue I saw was on the handle, right next to the hand guard there is a red number stamped onto the leather. It doesn't come off and smears if you run your hand over it. Nothing major.
Nice practice sword, light and painless, great buy.
I always wanted a kendo stick, very good price and its worth the money.
I got mine about Feb. 2008 and still have it to this day. It's fairly light, sturdy, and has a good feel about it. I took it up against my friends red wood bokken and withstood it for the most part. About a year ago the strings holding the bamboo together started to come undone but I re-tied them and added a glue to help and has worked so far. I love this sword and plan to buy more from here as time goes on.
Great for sparing!!! Very well made and a lot of fun. It is great for the price.
This thai nagi sword is LEGIT! I already had the combat commander Gladius, and this is twice as awesome! The carbon steel slices through grass mats like butter and you should see what it did to watermelons!
