” This Katori Shinto ryu bokken ( or bokuto ) 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.
The Katori bokken has a short and thick blade that ends with a beveled tip, and a slight curvature. Due to its particular shape it is usualy used only by the practitioners of the “Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto ryu ” sword school. But it can also be used for a personnal practice to experiment with new sensations.
The Katori bokken has a high power-to-weight ratio since its long handle combined with a short and thick blade allows a significant energy transfer.
Available finish: finished with an environmentally friendly varnish
