Hickory Arms creates custom wooden practice swords for Eastern martial arts. Our hickory swords will hold up to heavy abuse, and allow you to safely train. Use them to develop serious martial arts skills, or just to practice for fun.
We offer two different styles of Eastern martial arts swords – bokkens and jians. Bokkens are Japanese wooden swords used for training. They are usually the size and shape of a katana – one of the traditionally made Japanese swords that were used by the samurai of feudal Japan. The jian is a double-edged straight sword used during the last 2,500 years in China.
With the help of Eastern Martial Arts experts we have added to our hand crafted training swords: Bokken with tsuba, Daab, Heavy Bokken (for mounted units), Krabi Krabong and Filipino Martial Arts fighting sticks, and Lightsaber Bokken (just for fun!)
