We've been facing the significant shipping delay of Bokken and Bo/Jo items we've never experienced before due to the delivery delay from the workshop, which was caused by business closure of one of the biggest workshops in September last year we had relied on. The existing workshop taking over all the orders also have been experiencing the heaviest demands ever that honestly, I regret to tell you that they cannot ship the orders as scheduled at this moment.
I would be grateful if you would understand we need around 13 weeks to ship out the Bokken and Bo/Jo items.
Again, I'm terribly sorry for all the trouble caused and I really appreciate your kind forgiveness regarding this issue.

Information Technical Specs.
This Standard Isu Bokken is made of quality Isu wood which grows in southern Japan and features a flat spine and flat butt.
This long model is recommended for Aikido and Koryu pracitioner for suburi and general paired contact kata practice.

What is Isu?

Isu wood comes from a tree that is officially called "Isu no ki".
Isu no Ki produces a exotic hardwood which can be split into Isu and Sunuke wood and can mainly be found south of Kyushu islands.
This wood is characterized by the fine grains and the warm and charming coloration, which ranges from a light creamy color to the dark chocolate color of Sunuke, gives it a feeling of exquisiteness. Isu is a hard wood, however, due to it's nature as a young wood, it's more prone to dents and damage due to impact, which is why it's not recommended for intense contact practice.
In the last few years, this material has become more and more rare, especially Sunuke which is extremely heavy and hard, and is mostly used to make high quality Bokken. Since it is both relatively hard and heavy, a lot of practitioners use Bokken made of this material for Kata practice in Japan.

5 of 5 God tier January 25, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from ONTARIO Canada  
Great bokuto!  It's really well balanced and everything.
The only thing is that some areas of the blade were a little rough, but nothing a little bit of fine-grit sandpaper couldn't fix. Oh, and you may need a new tsuba for it. The old plastic one that I had didn't fit it, since it was too thick for it.
Overall, completely worth it!

5 of 5 Satisfied! April 28, 2018
Reviewer: Jose-Luis Segura from Vallejo, CA United States  
I’m really happy with my purchase. Great balance and finish. Super solid craftsmanship. I wish I knew it was as light as it was before hand. But then , I’d never heard of isu wood before. Live and learn.  Otherwise I’m satisfied. I hope to purchase again in the future.

3 of 5 Standard Isu Bokken Long January 29, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ireland  
Bought two. Found one felt significantly heavier than other. I presume they are hand as the lines are not perfect. Suitable for training but feel a bit oily.
