Bokken for women and children

White / red japanese Oak Bokken

Bokkken Weight: about 400g

Length: 91cm

Tsuka size: 3 x 2.2cm

This wooden sword for women and children is convenient, robust and resistant.

Its length is 90cm, therefore it is suitable for a person less than 155cm tall. It is lighter and shorter than kendogata wooden sword (500g, 102cm).

This bokken has a tsuba groove. You can put tsuba and tsuba dome.

In general, white oak is a little bit heavier (30 - 40g) than red oak. However, according to a study performed by the Association for the defence of Japanese wood, density is approximately the same.

These bokken are made from Japanese oak from Kyushu (the southern part of Japan ) by ARAMAKI Craft Company at Miyakonojo, in Kyushu. This company represented more than 80% of the bokken manufacturing market in Japan. Miyakonojo keeps the traditional way of manufacturing, such as  drying the wood naturally in order not to destroy the fibers of oak; therefore our bokken are solid and robust and can be used for a long time. ARAMAKI Company uses the wood taken from 70 years old trees.
