Do I have to do something before using a new shinai?

by Kerugin

I just bought two Shinai. They are already assembled. Can I use them right away or do I need to do something before using them?

Answer: Good question.

You may want to check if there are splinters and/or sings of bugs. There are some tips on this page under shinai. Also for the future reference, this shinai page may be helpful. There are links to "how to make your shinai shorter" and "how to maintain your shinai".
