Bokuto

Here are our standardized weapons, for custom weapons contact us at kataylor@sdksupplies.com or check out our custom weapons page. The weapons below are of various sizes and shapes and are usually available for immediate shipment.

All these weapons are made by SDKsupplies from North American hickory. They are all available at wholesale prices if purchased in bulk and if you have a special or custom design that you'd like to have made for your club or retail store in orders of 5 or more, just email us, we can likely do it for you at standard prices.

All hickory weapons have a hand rubbed, flexible, tung oil finish which allows moisture resistance while allowing you to feel the wood.

In some cases we offer these weapons in other woods, usually Ipe or Purpleheart. If so you will find a different button below to add these other woods to your cart.

Please note that all prices on this page include shipping in North America

Standard Bokuto Daito

Hickory bokken with shoulder for tsuba

These are "standard" size and shape, the bokuto is 40" (102cm) long with a 10" (25.5 cm) tsuka (hilt). The sori (curvature) is 5/8" (1.5cm). These measurements will of course be approximate since they are hand made. This model is suitable for kendo no kata, iaido and jodo.

Hickory Daito price is $65.00 (includes shipping in North America). 

Ipe Daito price is $90.00 (includes shipping in North America).

hickory aikido bokken, daito

Here is a closer view of the two tip styles.  We can of course make any tip style you'd like for bulk orders. You will also see the variation in colour and grain that occurs in hickory. I did not select "perfect" examples of bokuto to show here, I just grabbed two from the top of the pile.

Heavy (Iwama) Bokuto

Saya Bokuto

This is our standard bokuto with a plastic saya and our leather single layer tsuba. The perfect beginning step for iaido students, no more pretend saya or trying to hook your hakama himo to get the bokuto tucked away at the side. 

More importantly, you can practice noto correctly, with the left hand at the centre rather than at the left hip.
