Fukuro shinai

Great for training for fast hard hitting sword training

The ancestor of the modern kendo shinai is the fukuro-shinai (袋竹刀, ふくろしない?), which is still in use in koryū kenjutsu. This is a length of bamboo, split multiple times on one end, and covered by a leather sleeve. This explains the name fukuro, which means bag, sack or pouch. Some schools cover the entire bamboo in the sleeve and add a tsuba. In Shinkage-ryū, the sleeve is lacquered Kamakura Red, and rather than covering the entire length, is tied off at the non-split end. This particular kind of fukuro-shinai is also called a hikihada (蟇肌, ひきはだ?), or toad-skin shinai. The name comes from how the leather looks after lacquering; the sleeves are actually made of cow- or horse-hide.
