The state of emergency has been lifted in Japan, but the international logistic hasn't improved much. Japan Post has suspended all shipments to more than 150 countries, FedEx shipments are suspended for all destinations, DHL has implemented a significant price surcharge and UPS increased prices for small packages. Long story short: most orders are shipped and delivered normally, but not everywhere and oversized packages are complicated to handle. Please refer to the table below to see if your order can ship and with which carrier/shipping method.

Despite those limitations, and thanks to our unparalleled logistic, we are maintaining a high turnover with dozens of orders shipped everyday. Our entire team is focused on logistic issues and customer support, entirely committed to deliver as many customers as possible with the most afforable shipping solution. We can assure you that the very large majority of shipped orders are delivered without any trouble and we would like to express our gratitude for your support in this difficult time.

  • Free shipping options can still be selected at checkout, however, if described as "SUSPENDED", your order will be prepared and packed, then put on hold until shipments reopen (probably July at the earliest) without further notice.
  • Emergency surcharges are additional fees that we may request for oversized packages after your order has been placed (no charge without your consent). We will not charge the emergency surcharge for orders above 30,000 YEN containing several weapons.
  • Orders put on hold as a result of your choice of a suspended shipping method as defined in the table below will be subject to a 2,000 YEN cancellation fee, should you want to cancel the order later on. (Except for custom made orders that are non cancellable, whatever the reason)
  • If your country is not on the list, please contact us prior to placing your order! Failure to do so might result in your order put on hold without further notice.

Suburito & Furibo - Heavy Bokken

Average rating: 5/5 - 19 customer reviews

About Our Suburito & Furibo

The wooden weapons proposed by Seido are manufactured by one of the last four traditional workshops 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).
The Suburito is a significantly larger and heavier wooden training weapon than a classic Bokken. As the name suggests, it is used for Suburi or solo Kata practice. Practitioners can thus improve their Tenouchi (grasping of the sword), their Hasuji (angle whilst cutting/edge alignment) and their Tomei (the ability of stopping the sword) - just as the Samurai did at the time. Please note that the Suburito, unlike the Bokken, have no guard.

Appart from those proper Suburito and Furibo models, some Koryu Bokken can also make very good Suburito, such as the Jiki Shinkage Ryu Bokken (~1100 g) for example. So we recommend to check out the heaviest Koryu Bokken as well before making your choice.
