This weekend I visited a province known for wood crafts.
You can get anything from tonfars to Bos, to nunchucks.
I was surprised however to see a couple of not so typical bokkens.
there were bokkens that had handguards made from steel and grips made from rubber... others from animal skin... some even had dragon heads carved into the handles...
My question is, generally, does it matter what kind of Bokken you own?
Or do most dojos just allow the use of the plain wooden standard Bokken?
