Re: Ordering a bokken/jo

I agree with Craig, I adore my beautiful Kiyota Japanese white oak bokkens, they have a tight grain and although my teacher had selected a fairly slim one for me (my first bokken), it is straight and durable. I oiled it with boiled linseed oil and have never had a splinter or crack in 6 years.
