Specialty Bokken, Tanto and Stand Set - Walnut and Maple
Custom handmade Bokken and Tanto Set using Walnut and Maple. A striking set that is excellent for demonstrations or as a gift for a visiting sensei.
This Bokken is made with a wood bending process to produce a strong weapon and a clean look. It starts as a block of Walnut wood approx. 42" x 3" x 1-1/4" and is sliced in half to laminate a 1/4" thick piece of Maple into the center. It is then cut into six 1/4" thick strips that were 1-1/4" wide and 42" long. These strips are then glued and clamped to a form, to produce and hold it's curve. Then the shaping and sanding processes begin.
The Tanto comes from the same initial piece of Walnut with Maple laminated in the center. Though, it is not bent as the Bokken is.
The Bokken is 40-1/2" long and weighs 470 grams. The Tanto is 11-3/4" long.
As an option, you can choose a personalized Kanji / Katakana symbol(s) to be burned on the handle. Go to the "Kanji" item in this store (https://aikidowinnipeg.com/store/kanji-woodburning/) to add your selection to the cart.
