39" Set of 2 Wooden Samurai Training Katana Bokken Practice Sword Kendo Stick
The Bokken is a practice weapon for the Japanese sword arts. This weapon was used primarily for sparring and kata training. However, a bokken itself is quite an effective weapon on its own. In the hands of an experienced kendo master a bokken can be just as exact and devastating as an actual sword. In either case a bokken is essential for training in most Japanese sword arts.
This is the newest style of bokken. The earlier problem of the bokken slipping when the hands became sweaty (as they will when practicing) has been solved by adding a cord wrap around the handle of the bokken. This addition, although small, has changed many aspects of the bokken. This allows for practice of drawing techniques and a closer realism to a live blade.
-The bokken has been constructed from wood with a light stain finish.
-The handle of the bokken has been wrapped with khaki color chemical fiber ito.
-Includes two bokken, guards and securing rings.
