Dragon Bokutô 2024

I have always been fascinated by bokutô. So I decided to carve one. From a boxwood log with some defects. It was very tough wood. Not easy to carve at all. But I like the result. Eyes made of stag antler with black horn pupils. 43 cm long. Added a old silk inro cord. I like it so much that I started carving another bokutô. I gave this one to my youngest son.
