木剣 ぼっけん 木刀 ぼくとう
A lethal kendo practice sword made of solid, heavy wood. It's shaped and balanced like a katana.
A bokken is a wooden weapon normally used for solo training, not for sparring. For that, the shinai is used, as sparring with a bokken will usually lead to broken bones... or worse.
Legendary samurai swordmaster Mushashi Miyamoto (1584? - May 19, 1645) fought and killed katana-wielding rival samurai by using just a bokken against them.
