Made from select cuts of Bamboo, and includes leather parts.
The smoking process infuses the staves with carbon, which is said to provide additional flexibility, helping to prevent breakage. Often referred to as 'Bio', smoked Shinai present a deep brown colour, and are currently popular with several of Japan's top Kendo practitioners.

Love the look and the smell of smoked bamboo in it. It is a lighter compare to my other kotogata shinai. Performance to be tested during keiko and upcoming gasshuku.
