About Our Bokken

The wooden weapons proposed by Seido are manufactured by one of the last four traditional workshop in the south of Japan, in the region of Miyakonojo (Kyushu), Horinouchi, Nidome, Matsuzaki and Aramaki (learn more about the workshops on our Artisans Presentation Page). Seido is the only company in the world (including Japan) working with these 4 workshops simultaneously. Our weapons are selected according to the specialties of each workshop, the time of manufacture as well as the pricing. If you have got a preference for a particular workshop, please contact us for a quotation. For our team, Bokken are not mere "products", they are handmade, unique, and vibrant pieces. We decided to separate the different shapes of Bokken and offer them in all types of wood. Available woods are red oak (Akagashi), white oak (Shirakashi), Isu no Ki, Sunuke, Tsubaki (Camellia), Hon Biwa (Loquat), Kokutan Murasaki (Purple Ebony), Shima Kokutan (Asian Ebony), Hon Kokutan (African Ebony) Buna and Kiri. You can refer to the page "How to Choose your Bokken/Wood" to help you make your choice. Please note that all models are not available in all wood types and rare woods can have manufacturing delays up to 5-6 weeks. Please refer to the detailed information on each product page. 
All Bokken can be engraved directly in our facilities within a few days.
Finally, most of our weapons can be ordered either painted (urethane) or unvarnished. Unvarnished weapons require more maintenance but their touch is without comparison. Unvarnished weapons are significantly more expensive because of the more extensive polishing and treatment with camellia oil.
