All the shinai we offer are crafted to be in accordance with the rules of the International Kendo Federation with regard to minimum weights, and maximum lenghts; however, some shinai, such as the premium Naomitsu hand-made shinai, and the "Bio" treated shinai vary a bit more, from normal to the heavier side by + 10 or 20 grams, than machine cut and finished shinai.

* NOTE: Shinai weight may diminish slightly due to dry conditions during shipment or storage upon receipt. Chiba Budougu checks all shinai for regulations weight upon dispatch, and cannot be held liable for shinai drying/weight change following delivery. We recommend storing shinai in high-humidty areas, or by resealing shinai in their plastic shipping bags along with a 5 cm x 5 cm piece of lettuce (to provide for moisture) in cases where a suitable moist environment is not available.
