from Dasmariñas, Cavite Philippines
At first, I was about to order my Niten Ichi-ryu bokken set from another seller in Hong Kong. Glad I didn't because the material might not be that well good.
When this arrived in June 2013, I was really impressed. The Niten Ichi ryu long bokken is thinner and lighter than my kamagong bokken. It's great in doing Niten Ichi-ryu kata and you can really feel the fluidity when you swing. I usually put lemon oil in the bokken set every 3 months for maintenance. I tried to use the long Niten Ichi ryu bokken during practice against a thicker white oak bokken of my senpai in Shinkendo and the Niten Ichi ryu long bokken didn't get any damage. Even though it's lightweight, I still get tennis elbow for having weak arms when holding both bokken in each hand.
The only downside is I saw a chip on the shoto when I got it from the Customs but still, it's great. Planning to bring the shoto to my work and use it for practice during my breaks.
