A bokken (木剣, bok(u), “wood”, and ken, “sword”) is a Japanese wooden sword used for training. Bokken were designed to lessen the damage caused by fighting with real swords and were used for the training of samurai warriors in feudal Japan. If you know anything about swords, you know that metal ones can be unforgiving with mistakes, especially if they’re sharpened so wood bokkens are perfect for safe practice of sword techniques and kata.
This bokken is composed of high quality red beech wood and includes one plastic tsuba and one rubber stopper. The wood is sanded and stained for a smooth finish with an excellent finish.
