The age old tradition of the hardy wooden training sword meets the present with the almost indestructible Polypropylene Bokken by Ryujin. This version is a classic Ko-Katana, designed to be used fot close in fighting and highly versatile.

Weighted like a traditional Bokken it can deliver as much impact force and damage as wood, but is impossible to crack, split or break apart no matter how hard it is used and abused. The only disadvantage to one of these training swords is that a good live sword blade can cut them in half, while a wooden bokken usually needs a few extra cuts to take it apart (against knives, damage is insignificant).

Designed for safe solo training or pell work to generate control and power, they can also be used for sparring, though beware - without some kind of protection these swords are capable of breaking bones and causing severe concussion.

Each sword also comes with a pair of polypropylene tsuba (handguards) secured with a fitted rubber habaki. Other nice little attention to detail include simulated ito wrap complete with menuki so you can grip the sword in a natural way.
