This listing is marked SOLD and is no longer available


For sale, a katana bokken hand-carved from mahogany, featuring scenes from Japanese Zen paintings. The omote depicts Hotei watching fighting cocks, from a painting by Miyamoto Musashi; the ura portrays a blind monk feeling his way across a bridge, a metaphor of the journey towards enlightenment. Brass menuki symbolizing the sun, stylized in a Zen circle (a metaphor for the void and the attainment of enlightenment) are set into each side of the tsuka. The entire piece has been carved by hand (not sanded) to be smooth, and finished with several coats of subtle colored stains and oiled.
This piece is intended for display, not for contact! It had three cracks along the grain that have been filled and I cannot find them now. It's a solid bokken, useable for kata, but not for sparring.
Dimensions -
tsuka: 10-3/8"
nagasa: 27-1/2"
oal: 37-7/8"
sori: 5/8"
pob: 5"
Don't have an exact weight, I believe it's one pound give or take a couple ounces.
I have reduced the price to $85 for this fine piece, shipping within the CONUS included. I'll also seriously consider reasonable offers, as I'd like to sell this. Please PM me or e-mail me at cletzelter@mac.com
Thank you - pictures to follow.

I'm dropping the price as low as I'll go on this, to $55 including shipping in CONUS. If anyone wants to make me an offer, I'll consider it. Otherwise, it'll decorate my wall.
Thanks for considering,
Chris
