Historical Background[edit]

When you summon your Fellow with this equiped they will Bow and emote Fellow appears frightened by the shinai. This is most likely in reference to how old martial arts instructors in Japan would use a shinai as an "educational tool" for their martial art students. This practice was common regardless of style (e.g. Kendo, Karate, Judo, etc.) and would be used to strike the students for discipline or correction. The practice is practically non-existent in modern times, but the concept is still familiar to most Japanese as it is often referenced in manga and anime.
