The Rippled River Bokken - KIL Guava - Fine Art Finish
The Rippled River Bokken
This guava piece had a perfect curve; destined to be a Bokuto. Unfortunately, there was deep scarring of the bark on one side. After several levels of sanding, the Rippled River was revealed: ribbons of dark wood and light wood, flowing in harmony down the heart of this weapon. The rest of the finishing process on this stick was an effort to conserve this natural water-like feature, with amazing results. Let your sword swings flow like the mighty Rippled River.
All of our Fine Art Finished KIL Guava pieces are selected for their distinguished characteristics and harvested directly from the source by our KIL Team. After our guava sticks are naturally cured, we give them a slight straightening (as much as we can to this dense wood), eight grades of initial sanding, nine stages of essential oil massage with a fine sanding after each layer, then ten coats of natural wax, buffed to a high gloss finish. Additional finishing procedures may be necessary to highlight the unique features of these one-of-a-kind weapons.
The Rippled River Bokken is: 37" Long - (1-1/4" grip) Diameter - 1lb8oz Weight
