About Our Chuto (Short/Kids Bokken)

The wooden weapons proposed by Seido are manufactured in the south of Japan, in the region of Miyakonojo (Kyushu) by one of the last four traditional workshops, 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. For our team, Bokken are not mere "products", they are handmade, unique, and vibrant pieces. Our weapons are selected according to the specialties of each workshop, the time of manufacturing as well as the pricing. If you have got a preference for a particular workshop, please contact us for a quotation. 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 of up to 5-6 weeks. Please refer to the detailed information on each product page.

The models in this category are Chuto Bokken, 10 cm shorter than standard Bokken. They are used in some Koryu, by Tada Shihan in Aikido, and mainly by kids.

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. Those unvarnished weapons are significantly more expensive because of the extensive polishing and treatment with camellia oil.
