    Deluxe Grooved Bokken 101.5 cm - Red / White Oak or Isu no Ki

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Chevroned Spine | Rounded butt | Long Kissaki | Goorved

    Red Oak, White Oak or Isu no Ki available

    This top model is available in red and white oak, and Isu no Ki. It is characterized by a more thorough finish than the standard model, long kissaki, rounded but and chevroned spine, and a more stringent selection of the wood used. The red oak model is made of high quality "Hon Akagashi". White oak such as Isu no Ki are also more thoroughly selected, notably more dense on the standard model.

    These Bokken are mainly used in Iaido because their centre of gravity is moved towards the tsuka as well as the sound generated by the groove is characteristically close to that of a Shinken or Iaito. This Bokken is also utilized in different styles of Aikido influenced by the practise of Iaido. In addition, these are great light weight Bokken for practitioners with shoulder pain.

    Please note: The tsuba offered as option might need some slight adjustment (done by yourself) to match your weapon perfectly.

    • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak, Isu no ki.
    • Available finish: Urethane varnish or camellia oil polish.
    • Optional Tsuba : plastic or strong leather (rubber tsubadome provided).
    • Manufacturing workshop: Horinouchi for all models

    Non varnished - Oil polish option (+ 600 JPY):

    All our high-end bokken are available in urethane varnish or camellia oil polish finish. Note that unvarnished weapons are much more pleasant to the touch as well as usage.
    Unvarnished weapons are are more ecologically-friendly, but they requires regular (monthly) maintenance with oil (camellia or wood maintenance oil) and they can only be made from the finest, Japanese quality woods. Given the need for maintenance of these weapons, our stocks are limited. Also, since the craftsmen must select the best wood possible to manufacture these weapons, the processing time is longer than for varnished weapons. If out of stock or made to order, the shipping time can take up to 6 weeks in case of shortage. Please not that the oil finish process can darken the wood significantly.
