Kingfisher WoodWorks LLC manufactures wooden weapons specific to the Japanese sword related martial arts - mainly swords and staffs used in the aiki martial arts (aikido, aikijutsu, Iwama ryu etc.) and selected wooden swords of the old schools (koryu). In business for thirty one years, Kingfisher has more technical expertise on bokken, jo, tanto and general martial art sticks than any American manufacturer and arguably, anyone world-wide. To get an idea of the depth of our experience in wooden weapon design, see this video bokken test.

 

We also offer unparalleled support in choosing from dozens of bokken and jo variations with personal customizations and offer the best selection of other ancillary wooden weapons such as suburito, hanbo, tanto, yawara). While small orders for individuals make up our primary business, we occasionally supply the film industry art departments and property master shops including the bokken used in Edward Zwick's "The Last Samurai", props used in GI Joe Retaliation and fighting sticks used in Marvel/Netflix Daredevil series.
