The hardwood Bokken (bokuto) is a wooden training sword based on the Japanese katana and is used in several martial arts such as kenjutsu, iaido, aikido, and kendo. Modern bokken first appeared during the Muromachi Period (1336–1600) for the training of samurai warriors in the various ryū of that time.
