Hundreds of years ago,
the Japanese discovered a simple truth; that to become a good swordsman
you’ll have to practice, a great deal. To become a great swordsman
you’ll have to practice with a “live blade”. And during the period
between ‘good’ and ‘great’, you should spend your time building
your skills and confidence enough to wield a razor sharp Katana safely and
To accomplish this, the Japanese relied on a simple wooden sword called a
“bokken” for much of their training. It was made from the super tough
wood of the Japanese Green Oak tree, a wood they called Kashi. The swords
produced from this wood had the advantage of replicating the size, weight
and feel of a steel sword, while minimizing the possibility of causing
grievous or permanent injury to those who used it.
Authentic Kashi wood bokkens are still used today, but are becoming quite
costly. They also have the disadvantages, being made of wood, that they
may rot, crack split or splinter. Cold Steel’s solution to these
dilemmas was to design a synthetic substitute, low in price and impervious
to the elements. Our O bokken is made of the heaviest grade polypropylene
available and closely duplicates a real Katana in length, size, weight and
feel. And while it is not quite as rigid as wood, it has the advantage of
being virtually unbreakable as well as remarkably stiff and cut resistant.
And, when you’re ready for a “live blade”, your bokken is still a
great candidate as a “last ditch” hide out weapon that can be hidden
just anywhere inside or outside your house.
