Yagyu Ryu wooden katana has slightly curved, light and thin. 

Loquat: in the old days, loquat was used by warlords and swordsmen because of its strong rigidity and elasticity. However in recent years, it has been very difficult to obtain its material as it became very rare and more valuable today (like Sunuke). 

This bokken is made with 300 years old loquat coming from the southern part of Japan. If you practice kata with heavy contact, it is the best bokken for you, even better than white oak             
The model Yagyu ryu is the favourite one of Tamura sensei to practice Aikido.

These bokken are made from Japanese oak from Kyushu (the southern part of Japan ) by NIDOME Bokuto Craft Company at Miyakonojo, in Kyushu. This company represented more than 80% of the bokken manufacturing market in Japan. Miyakonojo keeps the traditional way of manufacturing, such as  drying the wood naturally in order not to destroy the fibers of oak; therefore our bokken are solid and robust and can be used for a long time. NIDOME Company uses the wood taken from 70 years old trees.
