I do custom knives and swords and have made/sold quite a few bokken

I found that you can buy oak and ironwood dowels(spelling??) at your local building supply shop

I have made a Bokken, but it is not really that good. I used an old broom stick and sanded it down, cut it and stained it. I also put a wooden(do not know the specific name)ring guard at the end to make it look like a real wooden sword. It does not look that bad though.

Actually if anyone has some information on strong,pliable,yet cheap woods email me at

#115756 - 03/27/05 07:42 PM Re: Home made bokken

I dont even know what kind of wood mine's made of i use'd this 7 foot long 2 foot wide 3 inch thick board that was beside my stair's i dont know how it got there im gonna asume it was alien's lol it took me forever to cut it down and shape it i had to cut it with a hand saw not fun its a good arm work out though i just finished makeing a tsuba (the hand guard thing) for my bokken.

Lycao I am kinda sorry for all the ridicule you obtained in my thread.I would like to say I am interested in this city. I really would love to at least visit some place like this. There is no way I intended for you to be ridiculed like that. Although you did come across as a sorry mother ****er. No offense intended. I have to say though the whole thing about "reactions that make this so funny" it really PISSES ME OFF!!!!!!! With that in mind I end this post.

Were I you I would take a look at hickory or ash.
Both are strong, readily available, and commonly worked.
They should have an "impact grade" that's good for bokken.

Course yo always have your oak.
