Even the best of warriors need to train, and the easiest way to train in safety is to do so with a wooden sword. For those who want to perfect the way of the Japanese sword, a Black Practice Bokken will certainly be the primary weapon of choice. Bokken is a Japanese word, meaning wooden sword, and that is precisely what this weapon is. Crafted from oak, this sword recreates the look of a traditional Japanese sword, and at just under three shaku long (one shaku is about one modern foot), it has a fairly accurate size. There is a subtle curve to its form that makes it look all the more like an authentic Japanese weapon. Cloth wrapping on the hilt also allows it to be wielded with a bit more comfort. If you are looking to do some solo practice or some half-speed sparring, then this Black Practice Bokken will serve you well when you are training, as it makes touch-sparring or training that much safer, while still letting the wielder get a feel for the reach and flow of a real sword.
