I haven’t been to the blog in a while.  Mostly because I’ve answered the question I had, what is the type of wooden bokken that will take the most impact.  The short answer is hickory, though there are some decent alternatives out there (Japanese white oak, also called shiro kashi, and Brazilian ironwood come to mind).  I plan on keeping the blog up, as well as the videos, so that others can learn from my experiment.
