[Bokken] Superior Model 101.5 cm


[Cover] Cotton Cover for Bokken/Jo

Next step

Product description : Superior Bokken 101.5 cm (MJ153)

Classic Bokken with superior finish for the practice of Kata

The "superior" model is available in red oak, white oak or Isu no Ki. It is characterized by a more advanced finish as the standard model, with a Tsukagashira (pommel/butt) rounded, and a Mine (spine) chevroned (triangular), and a long point (Kissaki). The wood used for this model, unlike for the so called "standard" model, is especially selected for its mechanical and aesthetic qualities.

Although the standard model is adequate for the practice of the Goshin no Kata, we offer this superior model because of the high quality wood and the aesthetic finish. This model is also allowed in the Kata competition.

The red oak and the white oak are equally solid and resilient to shocks (white oak is slightly more resistant). However, the Isu no Ki is somewhat less solid and therefore not suited for contact practice. The absence of the contact in the Judo no Kata allows to choose either of these 3 wood essences, depending on your color and weight preferences.

Varnished or unvarnished finish?
All our high-end weapons are available in varnished or unvarnished finish. The urethane coating protects the wood against moisture and temperature fluctuations, and thus makes it more durable, hence no special maintenance is needed. The unvarnished finish corresponds to a camellia oil polish to obtain a wood that is more natural and pleasant to the touch, but requires regular maintenance. Unvarnished weapons are more expensive because only the best timber is good enough to be kept raw.

As option a carry bag suitable for both, Bokken and Jo is offered. The cover is originally designed to hold a single weapon, but two weapons (one Bokken and one Jo) can fit in as well. More information on the specific product page "Protection for Bokken/Jo".

  • Finish: urethane varnish or camellia oil polish
  • Optional Tsuba (guard): plastic or strong leather (Tsubadome (rubber ring) is provided)
  • Manufacturing workshop: Horinouchi or Aramaki

Information about engraving

All engravings are made with the high-end professional Gravograph machine (French brand). The engraving delays the shipping for 5 days. (resulting in a total delay of 5 days for in stock products or 3 to 4 weeks for products made to order.)

Engravings can be made at various positions on the weapon, and on both, the right and the left side (when held). For logo engravings or other engraving positions please contact us for a quotation.

The laser engraving is only superficial (at a depth of less than 1 mm), preserving the integrity of the weapon.

1 - Engraving content

By default we offer name and/or family name engravings as well as other expressions up to a maximum of two words.
It is necessary to choose the corresponding option for the desired engraving to ensure a correct billing. Meaning $9 for a name and 17€ for first AND family name or other engravings containing maximally two words.

  • First OR family name: e.g. Marc, Tony, Smith, Miller, etc. including double-barreled names.
  • First AND family name: e.g. Marc Miller, Tony Smith etc. (To avoid long engravings, we do not recommend double-barreled name PLUS family name.)
  • Initials: e.g. MT, CD, etc. carried out in English (Block or cursive letter) only (initials do not exist in Japanese lettering).
  • Other word: e.g. Dojo name, or common expression such as "Judo" or "Jujutsu". Note that this option is limited to a maximum of 2 words.
2 - Letter size

The standard size is 7.5 mm / character. The engraving being significantly more accurate than the embroidery, this size provides easily readable and well marked but discrete characters. In addition, we offer character sizes of 10 mm and 12 mm.

Note that the exact character size is optimized by our engraving workshop according to the content, number of characters and the position of the engraving.

3 - Languages and fonts

It is possible to engrave in Japanese and English. For engravings in Japanese, free translation is provided. In this case you simply have to enter your name in English and then choose the option "Japanese" - [...]"

  • In Japanese: vertical only, classic font Kaishotai, cursive Gyoshotai, usual gothique, or seal Hanko.
  • In English: vertical or horizontally
  • In English cursive letters: horizontally only
  • Note: Initials do not exist in Japanese. Any initial engravings will be automatically engraved in English!
4 - Position

We recommend engravings placed on the bottom of the blade because of their discreetness and because they do not interfere with the grip. Engravings on the handle are also common, however, we do not recommend engravings on the blade or the center of the Jo to avoid deterioration of the engraving and endangering the integrity of the weapon.

It is possible to engrave each side of the Bokken/Tanto/handgun. The right/left side is determined when holding the weapon (in a position ready to attack).

  • Bokken/Tanto: bottom of the blade
  • Bokken/Tanto: handle (grip)
  • Bokken/Tanto: center of the blade
5 - Content

This field is required. This is the engraving content. This field must contain ONLY the desired content (maximally 30 characters).

6 - Files or additional comments/instructions

In the field "other instructions" you can give us more details regarding the engraving content and its realization.

Finally, you can upload a picture of the desired engraving. Note that in many cases there are several variations for the name transcription in Japanese. We will not accept any claims regarding name transcriptions in Japanese if no further/exact instructions were given.
