A word from the manufacturer

” This Katori Shinto ryu Wakizashi, or “Shoto” (short sword) 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 wakizashi is manufactured at our workshop in the Perigord France, using traditional techniques.
This model is based on the shape of the Katori Shinto ryu bokken (long sword), with a thick blade and its caracteristic beveled tip. The transition between the handle and the blade is very progressive allowing you to adjust your grip according to your feeling “.

Available finish: finished with an environmentally friendly varnish


⇒ Engrave this wakizashi

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.
