My name’s Travis, and I’ve practiced some form of martial art for about 25 years, though most of my practice is very informal right now (being a husband, dad, and business owner does that to you).  My hobbies tend to rotate every 3-5 years, and bokken seems to be the one right now.

In searching the net for info on bokken, I found that there really wasn’t a lot out there, and most people seemed to have no idea what they were talking about when it came to bokken, as it all was more conjecture and hearsay and not from real experience.  So I decided to find out for myself what makes a great bokken through personal experimentation.  My goal: to find the ultimate bokken that gets as close to indestructible as possible, while learning a lot about how they are made, used, and the wood and craftsmanship that went into them.

– Mushin!
