Looks aren't everything

This Bokken is what I expected but contact will leave this one rattled. Best for forms which I use instead of a Broadsword for tai chi a little light but id say a good starter . Great finish on the blade but, looks aren't everything.

This is a solid training sword that has a good feel and weight. I am very happy with it and it appears very strong.

This would be the first bokken that I've ever bought would you say it's beginner friendly?

This bokken is beginner friendly, although the other model you were looking at would probably be better for you.

Stain Hue

The red oak stain for this Bokken looks different from the KD Shoto (similar style). Is there a bokken that matches the canadian red oak shoto?

Hmm, good question Erin. I'll have to look into the staining methods used. It could just be that the pictures were taken with different lighting.

yes disregard the chord colors as described - they are both black. The cherry wood is the darker wood you see, with the red oak being the lighter hued wood.

NOT for actual use

This bokken lasted all of 10 minutes. While it looked nice coming out of the box, it was snapped after a couple light taps. Very upsetting all around.

My 7yr old daughter uses this for training. It is a great fit for her. The item is high quality wood and the handle has not loosened at all in the year we have had it. Very highly recommended

You get what you pay for

As long as you don't use this bokken for contact purposes, which it is not intended for, you are in the clear. The bokken itself is a little too light, but may be better suited well for a child. The handle wrap is woven nylon which will start to fray and come loose after 4 hours of solid practice. The actual craftsmanship is disappointing...porous wood, riddled with knots, not straight, and no continuity in the width of the blade. You will more than likely have difficulty getting the Tsuba down to the handle, and it won't fasten securely when put on. In all fairness, this bokken is only $10, so you get what you pay for. Good for forms, but expect it to break quickly if you decide to use it for contact.

Beautiful finish and great buy!

This is the nicest bokken I own and I use it to practice foot and hand work. It came with a very slight bow to the left and has not caused any problems for practice. The finish on this bokken is very nice and I hate to use it when training with another person, and usually use one of my other bokken. This is a great buy for the money.
