Red Oak Suburito Sword
Item #: MC-SE-808
The traditional bokken was not the only training weapon used in ancient Japan; another training tool was used, made decidedly heavier than the bokken and even the katana; we offer a version of this tool, in our Red Oak Suburito Sword. Traditionally only used in single practice, the suburito is deliberately made heavy, so that the user has to exercise greater levels of strength to wield it properly; this, in turn, builds upper-body strength and coordination, which is the ultimate goal of training with the suburito. Our suburito is made of sturdy red oak; the hilt is defined and the blade is very vague and general, although it has greater heft then a typical bokken (and even a typical katana). If the bokken isn't giving you the work-out you need, or if you want to work on swordplay and strength at the same time, then you need our Red Oak Suburito Sword.
