This Deluxe African Ebony Bokken is made of very limited and rare African wood and features a special ridged spine and rounded butt for a more realistic Shinken feeling when training.

The African Ebony Deluxe bokken is great for Suburi, but it's outstanding quality will make it a unique piece of ornament.

This Bokken is not recommended for contact training due to the brittle nature of this material.

Available in Long and Short versions.

Beauty of African Ebony

As the name suggests this wood comes from a tree originated mainly in Africa, and the South East Asia. The usual wood that comes from this tree has a color gradation that goes from jet black to dark brown. However, rarely there is some wood that is completely black. African Ebony is very strong and dense, however, since the fibers are not as strong as for example White Oak, which makes it brittle and so it's not recommended for full contact training.
Being extremely dense and hard, the trees that produce this wood takes a long time to grow, it's said that to it takes around 200 years for the tree to reach a diameter of 20 cm. This is why it is said that in the near-future, there will be no way to get your hands on a Bokken made of this material.
Because of this wood being extremely rare and also because of the high price, it's mostly used for viewing or decoration because of the beauty of the naturally black wood.

Thanks you very much for making this kind of things...I really like it and I just start practising since the day it comes, it has an excellent weight for one hand moves and swinging it makes me happy.
Really thanks you for giving me the chance of knowing such an art.
