thats actually very very nice.
if you dont mind me asking, how much did you pay for it and the website?

pls report back on how it holds under contact
It set me back about $40 and the website is http://www.gungfu.com. I just tested it out with my buddy I practice with. He loves his new ebony tiger as well and we spared no restraint in sparring today. Overall, the wood feels solid and has a noticeable absorption on impact. After we were done, the eges of the bokken had some slight dents, but this is to be expected, as the cellular material of the wood is getting compacted and more dense. A little sanding and some wax left it perfect.
