Kigen (起源) means origin or beginning. This represents the style of our standard bokuto. We blend old and modern methods to create strong bokuto that can be used kata or kumitachi. The woods used in the Kigen Series include Appalachian Hickory and SLC Oak. It is a good place to start if you are new to Japanese sword arts. Select from the wood grain below for more information.
Kodo (古道) means old ways and that reflects clearly in these traditional bokuto. We only use traditional tools and methods while crafting each bokuto by hand. No machine or sandpaper will ever touch these weapons. They can be used for training or displayed as works of art. Only the highest grade Appalachian Hickory is used and you can read more by selecting the wood below.
Zenryoku (全力) means all one's power and it will take all your power to tame this bokuto. It weights an impressive 4 lbs and is great for suburi or intense kata practice. After using this bokuto for a while even your shinken will feel light. You can get your zenryoku bokuto made using traditional methods or a mix of modern and traditional methods.
