Togakure Ryu Uchi Barai Bo Shuriken
Togakure Ryu Uchi Barai Bo Shuriken Specifications:
Type: Tapered Bo Shuriken
Material: Tool Steel/Tempered Steel
The Togakure Ryu Uchi Barai is one of the traditional Shuriken of the Togakure Ryu Ninja. Somewhat similar in design to the Katori Shinto Ryu Shuriken the Togakure Ryu Uchi Barai is tapered down to a needle shaped tip and has a slight taper at the rear of the Shuriken.
The Togakure Ryu Uchi Barai Bo Shuriken is one of the 3 fundamental Togakure Ryu Shuriken of the Bujinkan which includes the Togakure Ryu Senban Hira Shuriken and the Togakure Ryu Ita Ken. These Shuriken should be the primary focus initially of any student of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu who is studying Shurikenjutsu.
The Togakure Ryu Uchi Barai are extremely effective Shuriken somewhat like throwing oversized needles into the target, They are well balanced and robust overall although somewhat prone to bending with repeated usage.
The sharp geometric pyramid shaped tips of these Shuriken are deceptive as they don’t feel as sharp as the Meifu Shinkage Ryu Bo Shuriken but the overall design of the Uchi Barai means their is less resistance upon penetration of the target.
Definitely an essential Shuriken for any Shurikenjutsu practitioner and should be the first Bo Shuriken of any Bujinkan Budoka.
