A Fire Bokken is a Japanese wooden sword used for training, similar in size and shape to a Katana with a wicked sheath. The wicked material is soaked in liquid fuel and lit on fire as part of cultural dances, and martial arts routines.
Our Fire Bokkens start with high quality top grade oak base. The Bokken is then wrapped in aluminum tape to reflect heat and keep the wood from drying out. Next, we add a layer of Nomex felt to further the heat protection and act as a fuel reserve. The final step is to cover it in a Kevlar sleeve for durability. The end result is a fire sword that is strong enough to take full combat blows with a long burn time.
Weight: 25 ounces

I've bought 5 swords and each one a masterpiece. Tightly woven, strong kevlar. Thank you Trick Concepts team, no other place has greater quality. Also fast shipping!
Haven't lit it up yet, but it seems like a quality product. Some Q&A about this prop that I had to directly ask TC about: 1) Fueling: TC recommends leaving 4" of wick near the handle in-fueled. 2) Burn Time: TC suggests about 3 minutes, but this, of course, is dependent on how much swinging you do. 3) Cross Guard: The cross guard had a metal layer toward the blade and a plastic layer near the handle. TC says they have never had any reports of the plastic melting. 4) Counter Weight: The handle is solid wood, so if you wanted to screw in a pommel to adjust the balance point a bit, you could. I'm lighting up at FireDrums for the first time in a couple of weeks. I'm looking for others with this prop (or similar) that want to come to some slow-mo blows!
As of now I have not gotten a chance to light this ablaze. I have been using for a performance i am working for saturday, to to have the actual item in hand was very useful . I actually bought this model based on another i had used in performance last year, and was very very pleased. First of all the thing handles a lot like a katana, it is not a small sword by any means. I fought kendo for years and swinging this big bastard around is not easy. It lights up very nicely. However do not burn alone and always remember that fire tend to move upward. So if you are standing there with your sword pointed toward the ground......that fire is moving up toward the body. You can avoid this my manipulations, moving, holding the sword over your head during a charge, something like that. And for those with ethnic fluffy hair like me......cover your hair for the love of god.
I bought 2 of these for a fire performance, which included a fire sword fight, so lite it up 3 times, practiced with it once without fire, and the wicking just came apart up and down the seams. so maybe they really can't be used in anything but a dance or fake fight, but they can't take a real sword fight that we hit hard, like you must when really fighting, So a little disappointed for sure
I bought these swords because they promised great durability against impacts and a good burn time. They delivered! I bought two so I could bang them together and they are performed well during my practices. I can feel the wood dent a bit underneath the kevlar but the swords are fine. They also have a good burn time (about 3 minutes with them soaked). I recommend soaking the kevlar at least 8 inches away from the handle; It gets hot!
LOVE my swords! I got two of them. They are nicely made, have a nice weight to them, big flame and super fun to play with!! Highly recommend.
In addition to spinning fire, I also teach a dual long sword kenjutsu style (dancingdragon.net). These swords are perfect for combining the two disciplines. My first set of four are still going strong after a year of heavy use, including full contact during both practice and performance. An unexpected benefit is that the kevlar acts as padding, so these swords are actually less dangerous then the typical bokuto I use for training. One of the kevlar sleeves has begun to expand outwards from the core of the sword, but all remain fully functional. I'm so happy with them that I just bought a third pair!
I've only lit it up once but it was amazing. The sword is solid, well made and puts out a ton of fire. Felt like arm wrestling the Human Torch.
