Hickory is nice so is walnut though not for contact weapons curently I'm crafting a kusarigama from Wenge gorgeous wood, a royal b*^%$ to work though try a wood that interests you. I have a boken I made from Ifit (a western pacific hardwood similar to Phillipean Ifelle that is almost alive

Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow
