Re: Finding KENBU & ultra-light kenbu swords

Thank you all for your replies. My stature dictates a sword of 2.45, but by "light" I mean 400g, because I know from experience that even a 400g niten ichi ryu bokken is too heavy after two hours of practice. My martial arts supplier here in the UK used to sell iaito made especially light for kenbu, so I'm hoping someone somewhere still makes them. Unfortunately the manufacturer who used to supply him no longer makes them. I had thought of finding someone who custom-builds, but no luck so far.
If anyone can supply me with contact details of kenbu schools, I might be able to find out that way.

My thanks again.

At your service
