I was very impressed with this wood.  It takes a smooth finish and the weight feels just right in the hand.  It has rich colors and a great reputation.  I was amazed at what this bokken was able to take, because I did not take it easy.  It is a very difficult wood to dent, and most of the marks on it were dirt and could be rubbed off.  This would make an amazing practice wood and is likely to last a long time.  I’ll probably pick up another one after I am done with my testing.
