I just purchased a red oak bokken, otherwise it's great, but it's slightly warped at the middle of the blade...

So, how to fix it? I read something about steam bending, somebody mentioned it could be costly so i thought to ask advice.

The warp isn't very big, it has a slight feel in balance though.
