Editorial Reviews:

Unlike most poorly manufactured and shoddy wooden practice katanas, this sword brings to both stability and practicality. With a comfortable cord wrapped handle and sturdy construction, this practice sword will last through many rigorous training sessions. Guard and no longer includes oversized ruuber band brace, now ships with normal style rubber band brace, not pictured. If you are going to practice, why not use a practice sword that feels and grips like a real sword? Measuring: 39" Overall, 30" Blade Portion Length.

Summary: Black Cord Wrapped Boken Daito Wood Practice Sword
Comment: A decent item for extremely light use. Use with any regularity more often then extrememly light results in the "cord wrap" sliding around and falling off; leaving a a very sticky glue film behind. Very light in weight though, so anyone can use it.

Summary: Great for the price
Comment: At only $9, this is an exelent buy. I have been using this thing for almost 2 years with great results.
Pros:
Wrapped handel is very professionaly done.
Very comfortable and lightweight.
Realistically sized and scalled.

Cons:
The center of ballence is not exactly in the center.
Chips and dents very easily (this is not for dueling!)

Summary: Mostly for (cos)play
Comment: I have just ordered one and after reading the other reviews, I'm satisfied that I made a good choice. Right now I'm not into practicing with it (since this is the only thing I could get at this price and certain people I live with wouldn't currently approve of me practicing swinging this thing around). It's basically for play (or cosplay) for Comic Con as something that can look like a sword in in it's scabbard. Since I'm not going to be hitting things with it, I feel happy that I ordered from Sword Demon.

Summary: a word to the wise
Comment: as i was very pleased with the boken, i wouldnt suggest buying from other than sword demon. i bought mine from another and not only were there some dents in it but when it got here it was missing a piece and i had to contact the seller to get them to send a replacement. be sure to get the sword, the hard plastic guard AND the rubber piece that goes over the hard plastic guard. i originally bought two other bokens from sword demon before i got this one. but because i wanted a slightly cheaper product, (a difference of maybe two dollars at the most)i bought from another seller and got a shorter boken! it was shorter by three inches which kinda looks awkward when you have two other ones longer than it and heavier. so just be warned. and dont cheap out for two dollars for a cheaper product. just to be on the safe side, buy from sword demon. still a great product though, just disappointed by the lenght.
