Japanese White Oak Bokuto (Daito and Shoto)
Finally, we have found a source of shiro kashi (Japanese white oak) blanks that is good enough for Sei Do Kai. We can now supply you with decently priced Japanese White Oak weapons of the best quality. 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 still hand made.
Here is the tip, showing the large grain pattern typical of Asian Oaks. These are finished as are all of our weapons, with hand rubbed tung oil.
Daito price is $57.00 (includes shipping in North America).
Japanese White Oak ShotoSame as above, but the matching Shoto at 22" (56cm) long with a 5.5" (14cm) hilt and a 3/8" (1cm) sori.
Shoto price is $40.00 (includes shipping in North America).
Japanese White Oak Bokuto with Hi (groove)
This is the same bokuto as our standard above, but with a hi for that satisfying whoosh when you cut. They fit the saya below.
Price is $63 including shipping within North America.
Japanese White Oak Aikido Bokuto
We offer an aikido model of the white oak bokuto, these have the "Sei Do Kai" safety tip (same as for Tendo-ryu) as seen below.
Click on the photo for the end view of the tip. These bokuto have no shoulder for a tsuba, as we see in the next photo.
Click on the photo to see the hilts.
Aikido Bokuto price is $57.00 (includes shipping in North America).
Shiro Kashi Saya BokutoThis is our shiro kashi bokuto (without hi), 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.
Saya bokuto price is $96.00(includes shipping in North America)
Shiro Kashi Saya Bokuto (with hi)This is our shiro kashi bokuto (with a groove (hi) in the 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.
Most importantly with this setup is that you can get the bokuto to go "whoosh".
Saya bokuto with hi price is $103 (includes shipping in North America)
Plastic Saya only for bokutoThe Saya alone can also be purchased, it will fit most standard size and curve bokuto (but of course we can't guarantee that it will fit yours)
Saya price is $35 (includes shipping in North America)
Japanese White Oak Niten Ichiryu bokuto
These bokuto are thinner than the usual, being about 3/4 of the width of the regular bokuto. They are also a different shape in the blade section, with straight planes rather than a curved edge.
The Daisho set price is $88 (includes shipping in North America)
Japanese White Oak Itto ryu bokuto
These bokuto are 98cm (38.5") and quite robust. The edge (ha) is round and fat, and the back (mune) is also rounded. They weigh around 675g compared to the standard style at around 530g
The Itto ryu bokuto price is $72 (includes shipping in North America)
Japanese White Oak bokuto with wooden tsuba and tsuba dome
This is a very nice weapon, we ship it finished but not glued so that you can either glue it yourself to make a permanent tsuba or remove it for carrying to the dojo. It comes individually packed in it's own box.
Price is $98 including shipping within North America.
Japanese White Oak Tanto
Tanto price is $24.00 (includes shipping in North America).
Japanese Red Oak Suburito
Here is an Aka Kashi suburito for practice, it is 46" (117cm) long with a 12" (31cm) hilt and minimum sori. The suburito weighs 950g. You might be able to make out the rather distinctive colour change between sections of the red oak, this is a common feature of the wood, leading to some rather interesting visual effects. The photo below shows the relative size between the daito and the suburito, the white oak bokuto weighs about 500g.
Suburito price is $88.00 (includes shipping in North America).
Japanese White Oak Jo
These are excellent shiro kashi jo, good tight, straight grain, and we inspect them closely before putting our stamp of approval on them. They are 50" (127cm) by 1" (2.54cm). To give you some idea of the variability in shiro kashi (and any wood for that matter), these three jo chosen at random weighed 625g, 650g and 670g.
Jo price is $63.00 (includes shipping in North America).
Japanese white oak hanbo
Hanbo price is $51 (includes shipping in North America).
