Re: Kingfisher Bokken
I don't really see the need to sand a bokken, for a jo yes, since you need it to slide between your hands. I have Iwama style Kingfisher's hand cut, regular sanded finish grade 5 and enhanced. I actually like the dents and patina on my bokkens.
I suggest you go for the enhaced bokkens, save you the work of sanding since they're dent resistant and don't warp that easily.
