The original training weapon of the samurai was, of course, the bokken – the original wooden sword. And it is easy to see why, given that most bokkens replicate the shape and size of a katana. The same is true with our Black Wood Daito Sword. Daito is a reference to the size of this piece. Anything longer than two shaku (a shaku being roughly equivalent to one foot) is considered a daito. This particular piece is carved from a single length of wood and decorated with a stylish black varnish with the appropriate shape for a bokken to have. It mimics the katana in general shape and form, because an exact mimicry would result in a less-sturdy training tool. This bokken, however, will withstand the tests of training and likely even a few good spars, if treated properly. So if you need a bokken, for training or for show, then consider our Black Wood Daito Sword. You will not be disappointed by this one.
