    Very good quality item. Nice weight and hard wearing appearance. Mine did not appear to be what I would call varnished, like I have received from other suppliers. I will recommend this bokken to all of my students

  • Unvarnished?

    "It is annoying that they are varnished." Totally agree with you Julian (all the items bought in ninecircle came varnished). Anyway, those pieces are quite good quality. Nine Circles Reply - These weapons are not varnished, only polished to a finish during production. We will investigate the finishing method and update the product details.

  • Good student bokken for Iwama Aikido

    This is a good bokken for new students or to fill the club weapons bag. The weight is highly variable, I have had a range from 698g to 839g. I would prefer consistently +800g. It is annoying that they are varnished, as this means a sanding session before use. I echo Ray's thoughts, perhaps a "premium" Iwama bokken could be added? Nine Circles Reply - These weapons are not varnished, only polished to a finish during production. Weights will vary due to these being made from a natural material. If you have specific requirements for weight please contact us at the time of order for assistance.

  • Stunning product - excellent service as usual

    Just unwrapped the parcel and took the bokken for a test drive in the car park. Whilst my fellow workers might not have appreciated my suburi, I certainly appreciate the weight and feel of this bokken. Excellent product and fast shipping. Typical Nine Circles brilliance.

  • A Nice Tough Bokken

    I've been using this weapon for quite some time now. A number of students at our school have had their bokkens chopped neatly in half by our teacher's own bokken technique. I am glad that this one has survived so far. It could benefit, I think, from being a little heavier and my particular one could be a bit better balanced, but otherwise it's great!

  • Excellent Bokken

    Good size, weight, balance. Many of my club Aikidoka have asked for the details and going the same way.

    I bought mine two years or more ago, and it is still in excellent condition, this is after Daily practice and teaching. This bokken will and has withstood a lot of punishment. Very happy.

  • Quite good... w/ a little but...

    I agree with my friend Ray. Having them 2cm longer will be perfect... and more perfect if also done for "Iwama Jo" :)

    These boken are good quality and great value for money. My own bokken bought in Iwama 10 years ago is 2 cms longer and has a denser grain which makes it heavier so if these improvements could be made to the Nine Circles product it would in my view be perfect.
