A word from the craftsman
” This Aïkido bokken is made of European beech wood sourced from sustainably managed forests. This wood has a high impact strenght resistence, and a light weight.
As any other wooden weapons of Manmori this bokken is manufactured at our workshop in the Perigord France, using traditional techniques.
This Aikido Bokken is particularly suitable for the Aikiken techniques practice. Since we don’t usually use Tsuba in Aikiken , the transition between the handle and the blade is progressive and has a curved and rounded shape that allows a softly adjustment of the front hand.
The bokken has a slightly curved blade and a short tip witch is more safety. A good bokken with a suitable balance and enought strenght for an utilization in Kumitachi (partner practice) “.
Available finish: finished with an environmentally friendly varnish
⇒ Engrave this bokken
Japanese inscriptions on Bokken, Jo and Tanto are completely handmade with pirography. Inscriptions are oriented vertically.
On Bokken, Shoto and Tanto, they are made on the blade just before the handle (tsuka) and oriented from the tip of the blade to the end of the handle. On Jo and Hambo they are made at the center.
We can engrave your name and/or firstname in katakana, or some martial or spiritual concept in kanji.
Select your option and write your inscription in the field “inscription to engrave”.
⇒ Add a wooden tsuba
The Manmori wooden guard (tsuba) is made out of european beech.
Since our wooden tsuba is made to order it is only available to accompany Manmori bokken but is not sold separately.
This tsuba sits between two rubber grip rings , supplied with the tsuba.
Zhe Lu –
I got sent this by mistake, but I thought I’d leave a review anyway.
This is honestly one of the nicest bokken I have ever had. It has a good heft to it and feels good in a swing. The craftsmanship is quite good.
