This suburi bokken sword is quite a bit heavier than the standard bokken. This is to help you build up your strength to help you with your sword work development. Initially, the bokken may not feel that much heavier but because of the extra leverage you get from it’s length your soon notice your arms buring from the practice.
Made from Red Oak, this Suburi Bokken sword is tough but shouldn’t need to be as you’ll never need to connect it to anything. It's purely for solo practice of drills and technique. One of these should last you a lifetime.
You will not be able to fit this in a saya or scabbard as it is not intended for drawing practice. Neither will it be supplied with a tsuba as it isn’t used for partner work.
“No advice of these really, if you think you need to buy one, then you should know all there is to know about them. Try 100 practice cuts each morning on each arm. That’ll get the muscles working.”

We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you.
We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Royal Mail 2nd Class signed - Pretty slow service but will get there eventually. We will try and post it the same day the order comes to us, but not always possible for us. More than likely we will post the next day or day after that. Only possible for small lightweight items, as heavy items are more expensive than UPS.
UPS Standard - Order before 12pm and we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next day. If you order after 12pm we can still pack it and have it ready but it is less likely to be collected the same day (still possible though, depends when the UPS man comes) and will arrive the day after that.
UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
