|Available fonts (style)||4 Japanese fonts, 3 English fonts|
|Depth||The stronger the laser, the deeper the engraving. Superficial is quite discreet, standard is deep enough to stand forever, deep can go up to 1 mm depth and creates a burning effect within the engraving.|
|Free transcriptions||You can write your name in English and select a "Japanese" font, in which case we will take care of the transcription. Note that several translations exist for the same name and that we cannot accept claims. (Please use the text field to add a comment if the pronunciation is unusual. If you already have a translation, please attach a picture). We do not translate expressions or initials, only names or words. Requests for expressions translations will be ignored and refunded. Please also note that initials cannot be translated in Japanese. Consequently, they will always be engraved in English.|

Product Information & Size Chart
Lightweight Chuto 91.5 cm - Buna or Kiri
Made in Japan (Kyushu)
Flat Spine | Flat butt | Small Kissaki
Buna and Kiri available
We added these two types of wood on the same page as the reasons for choosing one of these types are probably very close. Both types of wood are particularly light: The Kiri, with a weight of only a third of a standard model but little resistant, suits especially practitioners with a weak constitution and children and because of its low weight and tender wood severally limits the risk of accidents. The Buna, concerning its weight intermediary between the Kiri and the classic red oak, is relatively solid.
Bokken are divided into two categories: The "Daito" (standard length Bokken) and the "Chuto" (slightly shortened Bokken). The Chuto Bokken are used in certain schools specifically for practice regarding the distance, in Aikido they are mainly for children. The Chuto Bokken is 10 cm shorter than the standard model and this makes it the perfect weapon for children smaller than 150 cm. Because they are not supposed to practise heavy contact techniques, we do not offer a tsuba for this model. The standard tsuba sold individually are adaptable but remain loose.
Buna and Kiri are woods that may present small imperfections and might not be perfectly straight. Those models are tools for practionners with shoulder pain or disabilities preventing them from using a standard red oak/white oak model.
- Choice of wood species: Buna (Fagus crenata) or Kiri (Paulownia).
- Manufacturing workshop: Horinouchi
