A word from the craftsman
This Jiki Shinkage ryu bokken is made of Service tree wood ( COR-T quality ).
“This is one of the thinest bokken, originaly designed for the practice against naginata. It is sometimes used in Aïkido for “Tachi Dori”, a practice where the aikidoka learns to disarm a sword wielding attacker. This bokken is not designed to withstand violent shoks, but rather for a fluid practice while working safely.
The blade has a very light curvature .The transition between the handle and the blade is very progressive allowing you to adjust your grip according to your feeling.”
As any other wooden weapons of Manmori this bokken is manufactured at our workshop in the Perigord France, using traditional techniques.
Available finish: Tung oil
⇒ 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.
