Due to the closing of the Horinouchi workshop in September 2019, the remaining 3 workshops are under heavy stress, as they never experienced before. Therefore, we are currently not able to guarantee the displayed shipping date estimation for this product and variations in both direction (shipping earlier than announced or slight delays) are to be expected.
|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.|
|Number of engravings||
You can order a maximum of 3 engravings per weapon from this page. The modules N1, N2, and N3 correspond to the engravings Number 1, number 2 and number 3. These modules are identical and you can add them in the order you wish. Of course, we cannot engrave twice in the same place, so please pay attention to the chosen positions.
For more than 3 engravings, please contact us prior to placing your order.
|Limitations||We engrave in Japanese and English only (no Chinese, Korean, etc.) For any special request (logo/design), contact us prior to your order. (Undiscussed demands will be ignored).|

Product Information & Size Chart
Shiai Mokuju / Wooden Bayonet
Made in Japan (Kyushu)
4.5 Shaku (136 cm) or 5.5 Shaku (167 cm)
Red or White Oak
Manufactured in Japan in one of the last 3 workshops, this Japanese oak Mokujo is particularly used for the practice of Jukendo / Jukenjutsu. This model is homologate for the Jukendo competition and comes with its Sakigawa (rubber tip).This models has small grooves on the sides, purely for aesthetics.
The competition model is lighter than the "Kata" model, and despite a very slightly lower resistance in comparison to white oak, the red oak is also a little lighter, and therefore quite popular, especially for women. Of course, for children, we definitely recommend red oak.
The Mokuju also exits in the practice of Aikido, as it was one of the first fighting arts studied by the founder Morihei Ueshiba, an art in which he was famous for exceptional mastery. It has been said that most of the Jo techniques stem from the Jukenjutsu and Sojutsu (art of the spear) and actually not from Jodo / Jojutsu.
For proper Jukendo practice, the 4.5 shaku length is meant for Kids, while the 5.5 shaku is for adults. However, the shorter 4.5 shaku is sometimes used by adults outside of Jukendo practice (Aikido for example).
For now, the engraving module for the Mokuju is associated with that of the Bokken.
An engraving on the Tsuka/handle corresponds to an engraving on the stock/butt, an engraving on the bottom of the blade to an engraving on the section connecting the stock with the stick, and the engraving on the centre of the blade to an engraving of the centre of the stick.
You will find a Cotton Mokuju bag in the wooden weapon carry bags section.
