This bokken has been selected Appalachian hickory, air dried for five years but using only a very small selection of material that has taken a natural sword curvature on its own. The result is a quarter sawn wooden weapon with grain the follows a deep koshi-zori (curvature), otherwise known as "bizen-zori." In this example, the effect is further augmented by the heartwood grain line that runs the entire length as a natural temper line.
To maximize density and hardness, Enhanced kenjutsu bokken 5414 has been processed through our unique "enhancement" technique where acrylic resin is drawn completely through the wood structure. This stabilizes the wood and compliments the phenomenal impact strength and mechanical properties of the base material. This bokken is incredibly strong and has all of the aesthetic features of a historic tachi. With a length of nearly 45", a weight of over 24.4oz and a curvature depth of 1in, it has a feeling of tremendous presence.
Inscriptions and tsuba are available options.
This bokken is unique, to say the least. While we have a few blanks of similar quality, they've been selected from thousands of billets over a many year period. At most, only a few will be made - each one distinct from the other.
