Oak Daito - 102cm


Product code: Daito

Prices from £13.33

Ideally suited to Kendo Kata and most other sword arts, our standard Bokken is a superior player in the performance stakes.
 

Available in:

Shiro Kashi - Top class white oak Japanese weapons.  These weapons have a straight, fine & consistent grain throughout their length and have the perfect balance of strength and flexibility.

Aka Kashi - Top class red oak Japanese weapons.  Red oak is slightly more dense than White oak, producing slightly heavier weapons usually.  A great alternative to the Shiro Kashi, with a wider grain which runs through the length of the weapon.

Chaironuri Kashi - Brown stained oak weapons.  Made from the same high class Shiro Kashi, but selected for staining due to less consistent natural finish.

Includes Tsuba & Dome.

    Really good quality. I use it mostly for kata, but it looks like it will stand up to fairly rigorous partner work and sparring, too. Will be buying all my bokken from Nine Circles from now on!

    10/10 would recommend. Perfect for everyday training. Durable as hell. Gets a bit annoying to hold during long suburi sessions though. Going to wrap some cotton-rope around the handle.

    I've just got my two new bokutos - I am absolutely satisfied of my purchase. The quality is great and I can't wait to use it on my next training :D Plus very fast delivery - less than 2 days - completely convinced me to trust your shop.

    Very fast delivery, as another has already said; ordered monday evening and hot to me by wednesday. Very pleased. As for the Bokuto; very good quality, finish and weight. Ideal for my Kendo/ Iaido. For the price, you could not ask for a more 'solid' Bokuto.

    These bokken are truly wonderful! They have a good weight and nice wood finish. The product was a good price but shipping put the cost up by a considerable amount.


  • Excellent as usual.

    Delivered promptly, product itself is great quality, feels well balanced and has a nice finish to it. I bought it together with the Tetron wooden weapons bag and they make a good pair.


  • Fantastic service!

    I have just received my fourth item from Nine Circles (a red oak bokken) and felt compelled to write a review, which I have never done on this type of comments section, as NC has once again surpassed itself in product quality and delivery speed (my bokken took two days from order to receipt). I have previously bought two medium weight aikidogis and a red oak jo from NC, which have all been of outstanding quality, as has the customer support, which has been of a standard I have rarely experienced with any kind of purchase (they even told me to send back my first dogi after it shrunk more than they originally said it would and sent me a bigger one at no extra cost!). Thank you for everything NC, you have become my go-to supplier for all things budo and I'm just sorry I haven't given you a great review sooner - although I will be posting this on the sections for dogis and jo now too, with your well-deseved and long-overdue 5 stars for those items.


  • A good one for medium or big hands

    My new white oak weights the same as my old bokken, but is thicker in all parts. It is perfectly fine for me, but maybe not the best for smaller hands. Tsubadome is tight enough, better than my previous one. In jodo, to practise hikiotoshi-uchi safely, it makes sense to make the tip more round (sandpaper or something) to avoid deep dents to one's jo from missed strikes.

    Being new to, but genuine towards the study of Aikido, I found this supplier via our association website. While uncertain (as all beginners are) I took a leap of faith and ordered all my equipment from here (based upon 'quality not quantity'). From initial advice to aftersales support I could not have made a better investment. At 40 seldom have I seen comparable customer support, and my equipment will certainly serve me for years and years to come. Do not seek a 'bargain' - buy from here.

    I have the following from this company; jo, (red and white,) bokken (red) kama and tonfa, and red and white bo staffs. they are all top quality and fantastic to train with. I work with wood and I can vouch for the oak use in the weapons I have from this site!

    My first bokken; pleasantly surprised by the weight and happy to get a tsuba with it. Looks and feels great for the very low price.

    Good value product for entry level bokken. Purchased on behalf of another to replace one I split into two practicing Kashima Shinnyo-ryu aiki-ken. The bokken that broke was clearly unmaintained by the dried out look. But I felt it proper to at least make a replacement... that's karma neh?
