"Bokuto" JapaneseDoctors Sword

Recommended Posts

Here is a Japanese ‘Bokuto’ which are imitation swords made of wood. They were worn in Japan by doctors and merchants during the 1700s and 1800s. The swords are imitation because, at this time, only Samurai warriors could carry real swords. A bokuto was often worn at night. It gave the impression of a real sword to warn off potential attackers. This sword is made of wood and is 13 ¾” (34.3cm) long.
