Dark Wooden Practice Samurai Bokken Sword
This classic hardwood sword is perfect for the martial art trainee to the professional. Sword is made of Solid Dark Wood and is 40" in length. Bokken is a training sword, used as a relatively safe and inexpensive substitute for a real blade in several martial arts. They are used in the early stages of iaido when a practitioner has not yet reached the level where use of a iaito would be safe. The exception would be when a certain kata involving two people is performed. Then the veteran iaidoka will use a bokken for safety reasons.
