    I ordered a grooved bokken complete with saya, it arrived very quickly with a sturdy box round it. This is my 1st bokken and I found it gives a good feel and satisfying whoosh as it cut the air. These may not be the cheapest on the market but as the saying goes you get what you pay for, in this case a good product and excellent service

    I've used this bokken for kendo kata and suburi for a while now and will be using the whole set later for iaido basics. This set will carry you far no matter what.


  • Fantastic !!

    I have only just been introduced to using a bokken but i feel that the weight is very fitting compared to an actual Katana. The style and feel is extremely elegant and the noise is very unique when cutting through air. Delivery was very quick, surprisingly as the snow was quite heavy around this time. You won't be sorry

    I have been doing Iaido, kenjutsu for a long time Toyama Ryu and Eishin Ryu. (lineage out the way) This is an exceptional piece: Sword: performing cuts, makes a distinguished audible sound, so you know you have cut correctly. made from shiro kashi (japanese white oak) - it feels light but extremely sturdy Saya: although plastic, its not a thin plastic, solid construction. Tsuba & Dome: although well made, I purchased the patterned Tsuba and Dome "Hana" Delivery: *** YOU WANT SOMETHING FAST, SHOP AT NINE CIRCLES.CO.UK *** Outstanding communication and service.

    The kit is amazing for a beginner, the bokken is of extremely high quality compared to my friends and the saya does its job fine. Delivery was faster than expected, surpassing my expectations.

    Fantastic shiro kashi bokken with saya and sageo. I use this only for practicing rei, iai and solitary kenjutsu/iaido kata. Too good for allowing anyone to hack against with a cheap lump of wood (my definition for a poor quality bokken, usually manufactured outside of Japan). I do have another bokken for kumitachi practice however... supplied from elsewhere but actually cost me more than this one supplied from Nine Circles, including the postage... great value and quick service from Nine Circles.


  • Good purchase.

    Bought this shortly after taking up Iaido and I still use it. Although it's designed primarily as a 'beginner's' sword, I've found it to be durable and suitable for both solo kata and Tachi Uchi no Kurai. My only gripe is that the saya, being plastic, isn't as durable as the bokken (having bent mine on numerous occasions, I hardly use it). However, it is useful for beginners when practicing noto. Also, for certain kata (Tsuka Ate, Ganmen Ate and Shihogiri being good examples) the saya certainly does help - especially for beginners. Overall I would definitely recommend this set. I only give it four stars for the saya.

    I ordered this item on the sunday and recieved it by tuesday which I was not expecting so top notch service on the mailing side. Great quality weapon and looks very nice perfect for my Katas. The sageo was nice really completes the look and I've had fun learning the different knots. First Bokken I've ever bought and I'm really pleased with my purchase.

    Very happy with this item, the bokken is of excellent quality and the saya fits very well, perfect for my needs, i.e. safe training at home. The sageo is a very nice touch too.

    i ordered this after breaking my previous bokken (bought from elsewhere) i was a bit worried about the price as i was used to buying cheap bokken nut i'm so glad i paid that bit extra! Top quality, beautiful bokken with a great weight and loverly Bo hi for great swish when training. Saya fits perfectly and is top quality too. even better you get a nice cotton sageo aswell which is great as any other bokken/saya combos i've seen do not have this.
