Each bokken is shaped from a single piece of wood. No laminates are used. This provides a strong weapon that is well-balanced and free from the lack of structural integrity that often comes from bokken that are “puzzled” together. While there may be slightly less expensive bokken that look the same, the feel of our bokken will be immediately distinguishable and appreciated. Don’t settle for less.
A bokken is a Japanese wooden sword used for training. It is usually the size and shape of a katana, but is sometimes shaped like other swords, such as the wakizashi and tanto. Some ornamental bokken are decorated with mother-of-pearl work and elaborate carvings.
The bokken is used as an inexpensive and relatively safe substitute for a real sword in several martial arts such as aikido, kendo, iaido, kenjutsu and jodo.
