ah, good advice: not to catch a dropping bokken. where may i buy a sheath for my bokken?
I think you have to buy it as a set so the bokken sits within it properly and releases properly; they are available from m.a. suppliers and I bought it when I was just starting iaido and didn't want to spring for an iaito from day 1. Don't like the bokken well enough to actually use it as my aikido bokken.
