      Kaigata Suburito

      This is a beautifully crafted suburito. I love the balance and the feel of it. I used it last night for some of my katori practices as well as during my Baguazhang saber routine. It will definitely help me increase my strength. Thank you so much!

      Bonjour à tous, je m'appelle Kenzo Ishida.

      je remercie le travail d'Aramaki et le site/équipe pour le produit. Parfait pour muscler le corps, gagner en précision de coupe. J'ai utiliser de nombreux bokken dans la vie et celui la est pour ma part et ma pratique d'un poids et un équilibre parfait.

      Convient même au débutant, même si le poids est dangereux mal utiliser ou à la vas vite.

      je recommande et remerci seido/Aramaki.

      櫂型素振刀

      櫂型というだけあって、幅の広い形をしていますが、
      特に、刀の先端、先幅が一番大きいため、
      全体的に先端に重心がかかりやすいです。

      ちょっとした手首の動きでも先端から
      引っ張られるような感じで倒すような振り方もできますし、
      いわゆる素振り刀としても扱うことができ、
      とても良いものだと思います。

      Perfect

      I Love this Suburito. I've got many Bokutō's from different Shops from Japan and other Country's, and even built some on my one.
      And this is one of the most beautifull craftsmanship i've seen in this price range.
      For this price it's perfect and absolutly fair. And that's what make Seido to my faforite Shop in Budo Equipment Seido, good quality to ah fair price. I recommend Seido to all of my Deshi's with a clear conscience

      Très satisfait

      Après un Jo voilà un Suburito Kaigata. A chaque fois livraison rapide, matériel parfaitement emballé et protégé . Très belle finition.
      Noël approche et un iaito ne devrait pas tarder...

      Très belle finition

      C'est le deuxième bokuto que j'achète sur Seido. J'avais déjà un bokuto en chêne blanc tsubanashi de l'atelier Horinoushi, et la qualité était déjà top.
      On voit que c'est artisanale, pas parfaitement symétrique dans le travail de ponçage et cela donne un cachet dingue à l'objet. Tenir dans ses mains, en France, un bokuto qui a été travaillé manuellement au Japon, à l'autre bout du monde, est une sensation particulière. Il est lourd et beau, je ne lui en demandais pas plus pour du suburi.
      Encore merci Seido de soutenir ces entreprises artisanales et de proposer vos produits !

      Excellent in so many ways

      The ordering and shipping notifications were perfect. Shipping was incredibly fast and it arrived in perfect condition. This product demonstrates excellent craftsmanship, from the incredibly smooth finish, to the cut of the chamfers and the smoothness of the end grain.

      While the product begs to be used, it so satisfying to look at, a part of me wants to display it as artwork.

      Just as described

      Extremely fast shipping and delivery.
      Arrived well packaged and intact.
      Very nice weight and balance. Very easy to begin using immediately, it feels comfortable and requires absolutely no adjustment to begin using. Exactly what I was looking for and expecting upon inspection and use.
      Would highly recommend this suburito if it meets your desired requirements by it’s dimensions etc.
      I am quite satisfied and glad I ordered this particular suburito.
