Product Information & Size Chart

  • Deluxe Bokken 101.5 cm - Shima Kokutan

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)
    Chevroned Spine | Rounded butt | Long Kissaki
    Shima kokutan (Asian ebony)

    This Bokken available in purple ebony (Japanese) or asian (East Asia) ebony has a very extensive finish: a hanmaru tsukagashi (rounded), a kenmine upper edge, and an elongated daikissaki tip. Only the best woods are selected and particular attention is paid to the location and shape of nodes.

    Ebony wood bokken are very heavy and will suit practitioners who are rather well built.
    The Asian ebony model is very heavy (~720 g) and is more particularly intended for Suburi. These bokken will also make excellent gifts following the successful passing of an exam.

    This model is offered in classic deluxe shape (presenting a line between tsuka and blade), or in tsubanashi shape (deletion of the line between tsuka and blade allowing a grip on a much larger portion of the bokken). The Tsubanashi model is made to order in about 4 weeks.

    • Choice of wood species: Shima Kokutan (asian ebony).
    • Finish: Non varnished (camelia oil polish).
    • Manufacturing workshop: Nidome or Aramaki

    All our high-end bokken are offered non varnished (camellia oil polish finish). Note that unvarnished weapons are much more pleasant to the touch as well as usage.
    Unvarnished weapons 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 engraved, out of stock, or made to order, the shipping time can take up to 6 weeks in case of shortage.
