High Quality Bokken for Aikido, Kendo and Naginata
Bokken – also called Bokuto - are wooden swords are used for practicing Aikido, Kendo and other martial arts as substitutes for more dangerous and expensive swords like katana. In order to safely handle katana or other Budo weapons, a swordsman must first master techniques with a training sword. Because they are made from real, carefully selected wood like shinai, Bokken must be none the less checked regularly for cracks or splinters. As they are carefully crafted, they must be equally carefully maintained.
Tozando offers bokken for various Budo styles. Most of our bokken are handmade in Japan by expert craftsmen. Tozando provides bokken made of white oak, red oak and rare African Ebony, in addition to other materials. Accessories, assembly parts and carrying bags are available as well.
