a few caveats August 14, 2014
Reviewer: Moy from Fitchburg, MA United States  
Love the weight and feel of the swords, the oval handles. However a very minor thing irks me, the long swords are slightly wrapped to one side. But overall a decent buy.

Beautiful August 2, 2014
Reviewer: Devon Meko from VA United States  
Awesome Craftsmanship! Loved the product and it was shipped in a timely manner. E-bogu really took care of me and the Jo/bokuto bag option was very nice too! Thank you for making this a very pleasant experience!

Bokken: Light, Strong, Good April 27, 2014
Reviewer: Brandon from California  
This is my very first bokken I purchased!
The weight of the Daito/Shoto feel very light, making it more easier to focus on swinging technique, rather than strength training.
I recommend this set for anyone who seeks a lighter bokken.

A work of art May 19, 2009
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Austin, TX United States  
This set has two very beautifully crafted daito and shoto. Both light and strong.  Feel well balanced and great in my hands.

Good Hasuji Feeling March 12, 2008
Reviewer: Guy from CA United States  
The bokuto shape makes a great difference! I can better feel and control the hasuji. The shinogi line is high and clearly defined. These bokuto are thinner than normal bokuto. The ha ( blade edge) is  not rounded and is closer to a real blade.

I mounted a plastic tsuba at a 5 inch point of balance on both the daito and shoto using two rubber stoppers for each tsuba. The tsuba were sandwiched between the rubber stoppers. The point of balance was adjusted by moving the rubber stopper/tsuba/rubber stopper assembly up or down the bukuto. The tsubas and  rubber stoppers were purchased in addition to the bukuto set

The daito tsuka at 10 inches is a little short for my preference but I adjusted it using the tsuba to an 11 inch length. The shot is longer than a kendo shoto.

Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Excellent Bokken Set April 27, 2006
Reviewer: Budoka from TORONTO, ON Canada  
The quality of this bokken set is excellent.  The colour (even better when oiled), the wood used, and the angle they are cut in are perfect.  Feels like real swords.
Great for practice especially if you have small hands.

A Good Feel April 27, 2006
Reviewer: Michael from Paonia, CO United States  
I particularly enjoy the lightweight of this particular bokken set, the smooth feel of them in my hands allows for easy but effective practice.  My only qualm was in their lack of Tsuba.
