The "Sunuke" (Hamamelidaceae) comes from 250 and 400 years old "Isu no ki" trees. Logging quotas established by the government of the archipelago on this tree make it a rare and precious wood. With its a dark brown color, "Sunuke" is a very dense and heavy wood, it sustains shocks relatively poorly. The "cheap" sunuke bokken are usually dyed. Our weapons are all guaranteed 100% natural sunuke. The Sunuke weapons are particularly heavy and are not suitable for full contact practice. They are excellent however for practice Suburi or to practice Kata for the development of tenouchi and tanren work.
