Iwama style bokken

WHere on the web could one buy bokken from the Iwama dojo? The more I see these bokkens, the more I like them. Their is a site what sells the Iwama style bokkens, but it doesn't seem to be as curved as my Sensei's. Is there a way one could order straight from Iwama?

Kingfisher Woodworks:

Bokkenshop.com:

And Bu Jin has an "Hickory Ittoryu Bokken" that looks really sweet. If it's the one that MY Sensei uses all the time (and I'm pretty sure it is) it's a very nice weapon to use. (And it's very similar in my opinion.)

Good luck!

PS: www.google.com works wonders, fyi.
