I found a site that sells wooden Bokuto with a Saya!
These are so cool!
Take a look!
The Bokuto come complete with a Saya and Sageo.
(You can even pick the Sageo color. :D )
Sageo come in black, blue, red, cream and brown
I feel these would be a great addition to the class as they would feel more like holding a real sword. Students could also practice sword drawing and sheathing techniques effectively with a Saya. Also beginning level students would be able to learn proper Saya and Sageo handling techniques without all the inherent dangers in handling a real sword.
They have them for sale here about halfway down the page:
I feel these would be very useful in practicing Kata that involve sword drawing and sheathing.
From Nukitsuke to Chiburi and Nohtoh these could become invaluable learning tools.
I'm Buying one :D
But I'm keeping my old Bokuto in the new Saya.
