I came across these amazing bokkens at the Martial Arts Super Show in Las Vegas. I had used some other bokkens before and these are in a whole other league. The craftsmanship and time put into each sword is easy to see. They are all super smooth and shaped perfectly. I went with the Blood Wood and the rich, dark red of the wood has been brought out perfectly in the sword. Anyone who is looking for a fantastic bokken then shop no further. The price seems little high, but you get what you pay for and then some with these swords. They are made to your specifications exactly. So you true had a bokken made just for you. You won’t regret buying these amazing swords!
