Product Description
    • Ornately detailed dragon carving on the handle
    • 40" long
    • Made from natural hardwood
    • Great for daily use or display
    • Weighs .44 lbs.

    The Dragon Carved Bokken measures 40" long and prominently features an intricate hand carved dragon that covers the entire handle. This carving looks stunning but exists to improve the grip on the bokken, particularly when sweaty and it works amazingly well. Made from top quality natural hardwood and crafted to last.

This bokken has good weight and is very durable. I have had this bokken for a little over a month now and have used it mercilessly with no signs of damage at all. I am very impressed with it and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fantastic bokken at a very reasonable price.

weight

I have just started using a bokken. The one I use is 15.8 oz. This one at .44lbs is only 7.04 oz. This seems really light. Is this the heaviest one?

Hi Peg. This is a lighter model with attention to aesthetics. If you are looking for a more standard style bokken with good weight and durability, I have two recommendations: red oak - wp-ke-06, white oak - wp-ke-71.

DON'T MISS OUT

THIS IS BY FAR THE FINEST, BEST LOOKING AND TOUGH BOKKEN I OWN. I WOULD NOT TRADE IT FOR THE WORLD AND AM GETTING READY TO PURCHASE ANOTHER ONE. I KEEP A BOKKEN IN MY TRUCK IN THE EVENT I GET A CHANCE TO WORK OUT OR FOR SELF DEFENSE.
THE SHAPE,WEIGHT AND CARVING'S ARE EXCEPTIONAL. MIAMOTO MUSHI WOULD BE PROUD TO CARRY ONE OF THESE.
IF YOU BUY ONE OF THESE BOKKEN'S AND EVERYTHING I SAY IS NOT THE TRUTH I WILL BUY IT FROM YOU.
THANK YOU,
SENSEI ISAAC. MUSHIN SCHOOL OF SELF DEFENSE.

A great, stylish starter

I got this Bokken two years ago and have been using it constantly. It is not like a traditional Bokken used by intermediate and advanced weapons practitioners but it is still a good Bokken that can be used by all skill levels but best suited for beginners looking for a bargain on their first Bokken.

It stands up remarkably well to full contact but seeing as it is not treated wood, you'll eventually get nicks and cracks at points which you'll just have to use sand paper and wood oil to keep it maintained. The Dragon design is neat and a bit stylish but is covered up by your hands so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb during practice. The Dragon carving may be uncomfortable to some at first but I quickly adjusted to the feel with little issue.

I believe my Sensei had used it once during class for a quick demonstration which wouldn't have happened if he didn't approve of it so it's likely your Sensei may not flinch at the sight of it too.

Though I have since gotten a more proper traditional Bokken, I still use and/or loan this Bokken out to new comers and I can certainly still wholeheartedly recommend this for early beginners looking for a bargain but with the understanding it is not your typical "proper" traditional Bokken used in arts like Aikido or Jodo. This Bokken came with two brown Tsubas.

The blade length for a 40" bokken is generally about 30" long.

Well I've had this sword for around half a month and I will say that I'm very pleased. It feels right when I'm training alone or doing some full contact practice with my friends. When first using the blade the hilt would rub against my skin and it caused slight irritation but after a day or so of using it my hands became tougher and it hasn't turned red or become tender at all.

As for the blade, it was very well done, made from red oak I believe. The dragon carving was also very nicely done save for a slight blemish in the wood, but my hand covers that anyway.

Great buy, all in all.
