I don't know much about weapons, but the particular thing I notice about this bokken, is that it's center of curvature is nearer to the hilt than usual (koshi-zori or bizen-zori). Is that the feature you are looking for?

Koshi sori makes for better, more leveraged cutting, but more difficult drawing.
Torii sori (3/4" to 1") makes for easier drawing.
