Description Item Specs
The Boken is a practice weapon for the Japanese sword arts. This weapon was used primarily for sparring and kata training. However, a boken itself is quite an effective weapon on it own. In the hands of an experienced kendo master a boken can be just as exact and devastating as an actual sword. In either case a boken is essential for training in most Japanese sword arts.

This is the newest style of boken. The earlier problem of the boken slipping when the hands became sweaty (as they will when practicing) has been solved by adding a cotton wrap around the handle of the boken. This addition, although small, has changed many aspects of the boken. This allows for practice of drawing techniques and a closer realism to a live blade.
  • Specifications:
  • -The boken is constructed of wood with a shiny black lacquer finish.
  • -The handle of the boken is wrapped in a tan cotton cord, just as a katana would be.
  • -The boken has been constructed with a high detail to replicate the look and feel of a katana, with a kissak at the end of the tip and a pentagonal spine and blade.
  • - Dragon patterns are engraved on the bokken.
