Bokken daito, Japanese red oak
€ 30.00Excellen bokken made of A+ quality Japanese aka kashi (red oak) wood. The wood has a very fine grain and smooth finished surface. Red oak bokken are often just a bit heavier than their white oak brothers.
When first starting your iaido or iaijutsu training, it's pretty common to start with a bokken and saya. Despite the blunt edge of iaito, its kissaki (point) still can be very dangerous. A beginners' technique can also damage the saya, which are quite expensive to repair. With a bokken and saya combo you can train your techniques in a safe way until your have learnt the basics.
Also advanced samurai can benefit from having a bokken and saya in their sword bag. Iaito and shinken (both weapons) are not allowed to be used in public. With a bokken and saya you can train in the park (in a responsible way of course).
Tsuba and rubber dome are included.
This bokken is suitable for use with the plastic saya.
