Product Information & Size Chart

  • Lightweight Deluxe Bokken 101.5 cm - Buna

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)
    Chevroned Spine | Rounded Butt | Long Kissaki
    Buna

    Buna, or Fagus Crenata is a very popular wood in Japan for its rather excellent weight/resistance ratio.
    Not as strong as white or red oak, it is much stronger than Isu no Ki or Sunuke wood and is an excellent compromise for practitioners looking for a lightweight Bokken that can sustain rather heavy chocs.  Approximately 30% lighter than white oak, it makes an excellent Bokken for women looking for something light, yet with a standard shape, thickness and length.

    This Bokken has an extensive finish: a Hanmaru Tsukagashi (rounded), a Kenmine upper edge, and an elongated Daikissaki tip. On the Tsukagashira (pommel) the workshop's label, a cross, is stamped.

    While available, other models such as Koryu Bokken or Shoto can be manufactured from the same wood upon request.

    • Wood species: Buna (Fagus Crenata)
    • Style: Deluxe Bokken shape (Tokusei)
    • Finish: Varnished or Non varnished (camellia oil polish)
    • Manufacturing workshop: Aramaki

    Finish options:

    In 2021, with concerns for the workers, all workshops greatly reduced the number of urethane varnished weapons and replaced the finish by a "Candle Wax". Seido is now transitioning to a new finish offer for the majority of its weapons.

    Standard Finish: At Seido, we complete the workshop finish with Camelia oil treatment by default. This is the standard Seido finish.
    We do not apply any additional polishing for this finish, so some weapons might have a slightly rough surface.
    For maintenance, we recommend that you oil your weapons about once a month with a vegetal based oil.

    Seido Special Finish: For this special Finish, we first apply a Camelia oil polish (oiling and sanding the weapons with oiled sand paper), then we finish the weapon with high quality beeswax. This finish makes the wood as smooth as it can be and guarantee an excellent protection for several months.
    For maintenance, we recommend at least to oil your weapons every month or so. You can also apply wax a few hours after oiling your weapons (if some oil remains on the wood, remove it with a piece of cloth or tissue).

    Bokken leger superieur Buna

    C'est un bokken ideal pour jeune fille car tres leger. Quand on le tient en main, on est ebahi par la qualite et la beaute du sabre. Il pourrait aussi bien etre expose sur un katanakake.

    Best in class

    The Bokken arrived promptly. The company was very pleasant to communicate with. The Bokken itself is beautiful. The finish is exceptional (I chose the oil finish), so smooth and pleasant to touch. It does not stick to my hands and glides smoothly. My instructor was impressed.
