Information
 
A limited run of 50 striped ebony bokken made by the renowned Aramaki workshop in Kyushu. Heavy, dense and posessing a unique texture - these outstanding bokuto are a joy to hold and use. Aramaki's signature features like a kenmine (tapered sword ridge) and daikissaki (large tip) combined with the wegiht of ebony, makes a bokken that feels just like a real sword.

Aramaki is one of four remaining traditional wooden weapon workshops left remaining in Japan. Run by the eponymous master craftsman himself, the workshop is renowned for its beautifully shaped bokken made from a variety of materials.

One of Aramaki's specialities is working with "kokutan" or African Ebony. This rare hardwood possesses an exceptionally deep colour, going from jet black to a rich brown. All black pieces are exceptionally rare and are consequently very expensive. Pieces including varied grains of black and brown are known as "shimokokutan" or striped ebony. They are well loved for their unique characteristics and beautiful colours.

These bokuto are paritcularly suited for non-contact suburi due to their solid weight and even balance. Ebony is a very dense and hard wood, but its fibres are brittle so contact kata or practice is not recommended as this material is easy to dent and break.

We only have 50 of these beautiful pieces available and it is first come, first served. Like all our bokken they come with free international shipping.
