Material

This Deluxe Bokken is made of selected high quality Japanese woods like Akagashi (Red Oak), Shirakashi (White Oak) and Isu no Ki (Winter Hazel) - all sourced locally by the Aramaki workshop.

The bokuto features a beveled spine and rounded butt for a more realistic shinken-like feeling during training. It is available in Daito (Long), Chuto (Junior) and Shoto (Signle-handed) versions.

It is ideal for use in the Kihon Kendo no Kata, Aikido Aikiken practice and sogo bujutsu styles that require an authentic style bokuto..

What is Japanese Oak?

The oak used for our Bokuto, Akagashi and Shirakashi, greatly differs from the woods used in bokuto made outside of Japan.  The structure of Japanese oak is uniformly hard, has excellent dent resistance and impact strength.  Perfect for contact kata.

  • Made in Japan from locally sourced wood
