Iai Bokken

About Our Iai/Kenjutsu Bokken

In this section, we present our Bokken for Iai and Kenjutsu. You find our standard Bokken in the "Classic Bokken" category".
All wooden weapons proposed by Seido are made in Japan, manufactured by one of the last four traditional workshops situated in the region of Miyakonojo (Kyushu). These workshops are namely: Horinouchi, Nidome, Matsuzaki and Aramaki (read more about the workshops on our Artisans Presentation Page). Seido is the only company worldwide (including Japan) that is working with these 4 ateliers at the same time. As we know our artisans and their strength, we can choose the best weapons from the best craftsmen, based on the quality, the time of manufacture as well as the pricing. And on top of that, we can in most cases, arrange to have your weapon made by the workshop of your preference! In that case, please contact us for a quotation. As we all are practitioners ourselves, the Bokken we sell are not mere "products", they are handmade, unique, and vibrant pieces. Therefore, we decided to separate the different shapes of Bokken and offer them in diverse types of wood. Available woods are red oak (Akagashi), white oak (Shirakashi), and Isu no Ki for Iai oriented Bokken. You can refer to the page "How to Choose your Bokken/Wood" to help you make your choice.

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.

Plastic Saya cannot be sold separatly due to the very low quantities produced for this made in Japan model.
