Bokken are also called bokuto in Japanese, and are wooden versions of real swords. They are often used in martial arts such as kendo, iaido, and aikido to practice swinging and kata (forms). When making a purchase the selection process can vary depending on the martial art and how the bokken will be used.
We carry a wide range of goods to fit many different schools of martial arts including: Hokushin Itto-ryu, Kurama-ryu, Yagyu Shinkage-ryu, Itto-ryu, Jigen-ryu, Katori-ryu, Yakumaru Genjitu-ryu, Keishi-ryu, Tatsumi-ryu, Kashima Shindo-ryu, Jishinkage-ryu, and Katori Shinto-ryu. We’re also happy to take custom orders for things like making the handle wider or the blade longer.
If you are a woman or beginner practicing kendo, iaido, and akido, we recommend going with the strong, but light weight standard red oak(ichii-gashi. For men we recommend the white oak(shiragashi) or premium red oak (hon-akagashi).
When practicing uchiai (simultaneous striking), red oak(ichii-gashi), white oak (shiragashi) or isu (Distylium racemosum) are best because they have a good balance between the strength of their fibers and how they stick. For swinging practice, any material will work fine, but if you are set on improving your physical strength, the comparatively heavier sunuke (Distylium racemosum) or kokutan (ebony) would be best.
Sunuke, tetsuboku (ironwood), and kokutan are beautiful and make great gifts, but because the fibers don’t stick together as well as other woods it’s they’re not recommended for uchiai.
