    This 40" daito is an ideal practice sword to safely practice your sword skills while protecting your self and partners. Constructed from hardwood and includes two piece handguard. Great for training!

    Bokken is a training sword, used as a relatively safe and inexpensive substitute for a real blade in several martial arts. They are used in the early stages of iaido when a practitioner has not yet reached the level where use of a iaito would be safe. The exception would be when a certain kata involving two people is performed. Then the veteran iaidoka will use a bokken for safety reasons.

    Fits together like crap, but for what I'll be using it for, it'll do the job nicely. As previously said, the color of the bokken itself is black, but the rubber is white and the plastic hand guard is an off tan/brown. Its very ugly, and lightweight. but for 10 bucks what is there to expect.

    When it first came, it was lighter than other bokken that I had bought off this site, and turned out to be defective, but told true swords and they send a new one and it works great! Definitely would buy again and will buy more from this site.

    First off let me begin by saying what a wonderful company true swords is,this is my 2nd time using them and I love the quick shipping.I can expect to get my order within 3 days! Truely awesome_Now for this Bokken it is a very tough wood and yes u can beat the holy crap out of it,and I got it while it was marked down from 10 to 5 dollars.I am very pleased with it and am so glad people put their reviews on each product so it helps me to decide what to spend my money on or find another option!Now ill will tell u the good about this practice Katana is it is tough and u can spare with someone and hit hard wood objects and it will hold up very well,been there done that ive got 3 kids and this one belongs to my 10 year old daughter and God knows i tried it out before she got to ever use it?LOL. The bad however is yes the hand guard slides up the blade and u do have to fix it alot so the answer is to put athletic tape wrap around the blade and bam!! all better_My daughter loves it, and id say buythis one over and the brown wood practice Katana that was on sale and I bought it also and it is already cracking:( Bottom line is this is a great price and fun to fight with and it takes a licking and can keep on ticking minus a few dints here and there go getcha one.

    These swords are great! Wooden they may be, but they are sturdy and can break through other things easily. Also, i had great shipping times and the delivery was right on time. The only flaw i can see is the mechanism to attach the guard to the blade. It is not strong, and the guard frequently moves up the blade, disrupting practice. Other than that though, this is a great sword, and i would definitely recommend this to anyone interested.

    Quick shipping. Plastic guard does not fit securely but not a big deal. Tape wrapping took care of this. happy with purchase.

    Purchused this Bokken along with a sword, very fast shipping, The Bokken is very nice, my only complaint is the sword is black, the tsuba (guard) is a brown and plastic whichk does not look good on the Bokken, and then there is the white plastic retainer? which holds the tsuba in place, very much a eye sore. They do make plastic in black! I can only give a 3 star as a result.
