Shinto Bokken
 

The Shinto Wooden Long Sword is 40" overall length with an 10 3/4" tsuka. This quick and maneuverable bokken is oriented to techniques of finesse and accuracy. It is compatible with many martial styles and unlike bokken that are intentionally created as rough training swords, the Kingfisher Shinto design has a feeling of exacting precision, but does not lose the austerity that defines the best weapons of antiquity. Very similar in proportions and feel to the aikiken medium, the shinto bokken has sword style point (kissaki) sometimes preferred for iai or sword drawing techniques. The image above shows the L7hc grade with fully resolved hand cut sword point with perpendicular tip dividing line (yokote). Shinto bokken in grades L5 and L7 are identical in shape and balance and also have a sword point, however, the geometry of the point is slightly simplified with the yokote angled rather than perpendicular.

Kendoka: There are some variation of the accepted length of this bokken. You can easily order a shorter version of this wooden sword. For example, make a note in the "comment" text box below " dimensions: 10 1/2 tsuka"/ 40" overall" or, if you'd like the bokken proportioned according to the All Japan Kendo Federation (AJKF), 24cm - 9.44" tsuka, 102cm - 40.16" overall, write "AJKF proportions" in the comment text box.

For longer bokken of similar parameters, see this link kenjutsu bokken.
