You will receive 1 Black Bokken and 1 natural Bokken, both with samurai katana sword style handle wrapping (tsuka ito). These 40" daitos are ideal practice swords to safely practice your sword skills while protecting yourself and partners. Constructed from hardwood and includes two piece hand guard. Great for training! Bokken is a training sword, used as a relatively safe and inexpensive substitute for a real blade in several martial arts. They are used in the early stages of iaido when a practitioner has not yet reached the level where use of a iaito would be safe. The exception would be when a certain kata involving two people is performed. Then the veteran iaidoka will use a bokken for safety reasons.
