Katana's ARE curved - a wooden one is called a bokken. If you are after a straight sword in wood that it NOT a Katana - try these pages...

I know there are a few koryu which prefer straight bokuto despite their use of curved katana. Not really sure why. At any rate, there is at least one available at http://www.swordstore.com

I think I remember reading that the shinkendo folks tend to break a lot of bokuto so they tend to prefer the straight ones, because they are easier to manufacture. Don't crucify me if I've got this wrong. It's been quite a while since I recall reading this.
