European Hornbeam w/Bohi

This Daito bokken with bohi groove is truly a work of art.

Made entirely from stunning European Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus).

Crafted in such a way that it helps replicate the feel of Japanese Samurai Katana, these high quality Bokken allow the practitioner to truly learn their art form comfortably  and with accurate hand positioning. It also gives the bokken a classic realistic look.

This bokken is crafted in a traditional style and suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners having excellent balance, fantastic handling and maneuverability.

The blade of the bokken has traditional angles & the tip of the bokken is also made in the classical shape of the katana.
Can be used with Tsuba if required.
