What did you get?
She got me the White Oak Iwama from Nine Cricles and the White Oak Tanto. The quality of these weapons are really good. I'm going to inscribe the Iwama Bokken with mizu no kokoro in Kanji.

Really happy with these weapons, all I need now is an Iaito from Tozando and I have a nice set of weapons

Re: Searching for a new Bokken

Well, I used my new Bokken for the first time in-Dojo toda and I must say I am very impressed by the quality and feel of the weapon.

I am going to engrave Mizu No Kokorro in Kanji along the "blade" near the Tsuka, time to get the Dremel tool out

Usually, I get my weapons from Kiyota in Maryland, and have been for many years. He doesn't have a web site, but he has very good prices and lots of different types of wood weapons. One of my favorites is the Chiba-san bokken designed by Chiba Sensei. It has a great weight and balance. More like a sword balance than the typical bokken balance.

Mr. Kiyota is very worth investigating and getting his number; absolutely the best products and best prices including gi's hakama's, iaito's etc. And if you ask very politely he will even personally pick out a nice bokken for you. Very knowledgable gentleman.

Peace in your heart all.
I'd second this. My experience with the Kiyota bokkens (Kashima Shinryu and Shinto Ryu styles) has been very positive. If I were in the market for a new bokken, I'd purchase one from Kiyota unhesitatingly.
