This enhanced Aikiken large bokken represents our best work both technically and artistically - that with some luck from the wood itself. At 26.6 oz weight and a high density, this bokken has a tremendous feeling of strength and presence, perfect geometry and side to side straightness. The wood pattern shows an extremely unusual pattern of white patches amid the darker reds.
The aikiken large design, at 42" length and fairly stout proportions, is oriented towards a stronger martial artist, seeking a bokken of heavy weight. While the material is exceedingly tough, and the weapon capable of heavy impact, this particular bokken, could also serve as a focal centerpiece, its character and name lending itself to a place of peace and relaxation. See the info below on the inscription.

Add the single weapon display stand for this bokken at $90 off of the regular price - we'll add the inscription "koun ryusui" to the stand for no additional charge.

This bokken, with its unmistakable patches of white and flowing grain structure - oriented on the omote (front or display side of the bokken)  named itself - "Koun Ryusui" 行雲流水. Drifting clouds flowing water. It means live life as it is - or, in modern terms, go with the flow.

This one-of-a-kind enhanced Kashima bokken is spectacular in weight, shape and appearance. Of all our work, this bokken achieved a weight exceeding most, if not all of our normal sized wooden swords. While the Kashima pattern is stout, it's still very difficult to achieve a weight over 2lb without creating an oversize thickness. While this bokken is relatively large, it's not excessively so. This is because the wood, initially very dense, was further improved by our process of drawing acrylic resin through the grain structure. It weighs an astounding 2lb 5oz. The technical properties of this bokken are augmented by its crazy grain patterns which include random darker marks on the light colored sections of wood, beautiful, flowing tans in the heartwood section and tiger-stripe patterns throughout.



The Kashima bokken derives its power through its mass however, because a skilled user wields the bokken using the correct motion of the entire body and hips, not just the strength of the arms or shoulders, it's for this reason that a blow from a skilled practitioner is able to send an opponent's weapon sailing away. You'll note that in our video demonstrating the strength of wood, a Kashima bokken is used to test the impact strength of various kinds of wood.

Domed kashira

The transition from tsuka to blade will accommodate a tsuba. Tsuba are almost always used with the kashima bokken.

This shows the short, stubby point of this style of bokken. The geometry is exceedingly strong but also captures the essence of a fully resolved sword point.
