Information Technical Specs.
 
This Deluxe Tetsuboku Bokken is made of selected high quality Tetsuboku from Japan and features a curved spine and rounded butt for a more realistic Shinken feeling when training.
Tetsuboku is admired for its hardness and beautiful grain.
This model is great for Suburi, but it's not recommended for contact practice due to the brittle nature of the material. Available in Long and Short versions.


What is Tetsuboku?

In Asia, Tetsuboku is known for it's hardness, hence 'Tetsuboku' which literary means "Iron Wood". As the name suggests, this material can be said to be one of the hardest materials used for making Bokken today.
Bokken made out of this wood are excellent for Kata and Suburi practice, however, since the fibers are not as strong as for example White Oak, it is NOT recommended for full contact training.
The quality of Tetsuboku wood is very stable and it's rare to see unwanted warping in Bokken's made out of Tetsuboku. Also since Tetsuboku naturally consists of high rates of Polyphenol, this wood has a naturally strong antibacterial and preservative qualities. Even if submerged in water, it has a high durability even without any artificial preservatives, it is said to hold for 100 years.

Deluxe indeed... December 5, 2006
Reviewer: Nicolas Tissot from Brasilia, DF Brazil  
I am using this very beautiful bokuto with pleasure. Very well equilibrate, a little bit heavy to initiate. be careful with the others bokutos : they will not afford his hardness !!!
Careful if you live in dry area, it is quite sensitive and needs oiling cures...
