Bokuto (wooden sword)
Commonly known as bokken, but the proper Japanese name for wooden sword is Bokuto. Bokuto was originally used by samurais in lieu of katana when they practiced kendo, the art of sword fighting. Although bokuto was used to avoid serious injuries during practice, sometimes it was also used in real combat. Famous martial artist Miyamoto Musashi is known to have laid down his real sword in his later years and fought his duels only armed with a bokuto or two. At the present time bokuto is admired for its aesthetic and cultural values and widely distributed in Japan for both ornamental and practical applications. HICK Bokuto is made of white oak, traditional material more prestigious and durable than commonly used red oak.
