This drops fairly often from the Kerrans in Tox and sells for over 6pp so a nice item for noobies hunting on their island. There are other bamboo staffs which sell for less but at least a plat each.

A bokken can be held in one hand, you wield a shorter sword in the left...a rare style but looks pretty damn cool. This weapon shouldn't necessarily be 2hb in my opinion because of that, also used present day in tournaments with shinais.
The bokken is basically a practice sword used for kata anyway...

A bokken is indeed used for kata and practice. It is not to be confusd with a shinai, but it was a training tool to simulate using a katana. Despite more recent styles (Twin Heavens, etc...) the Katana was always intended to be wielded with 2 hands. It was not until the late 19th century when the katana was produced for export with a much shorter handle (a slight towards ignorant westerners) that it was thought of as a single-hand weapon.

Hence the bokken WAS traditionally wielded with 2 hands. Further, there was never a 2d weapon wielded simultaneously in traditional useage. (You Highlander fans can say what you like, I'm refering to the original Boshido practicioners.)

Besides, to allow it to be used in a florentine style would open it up to being used in the left hand... a serious fau pax.

The heck... it looks like a stick
Bokkens are wooden swords, not sticks Verant O_o

Bokken are Japanese practice Katana. A TRUE Bokken had no hand guard and appears to be a curved "stick". I stick with Verant so far, although it's tip should be carved and appear sword-like though.

I also really believe that the weight is a typo? 1.5 lbs for a Bamboo and around 3lbs or so for a heavier wood such as ash or oak would be more appropriate. Also the speed should be much lower... 40 at the most.

May Tunare Guide you!

and weight =)

This was a great chance for Verant to fill in another gap besides a midlevel dungeon on Odus. Namely some lowlevel monk weapons for working on 1hb and 2hb until the Kunark weapons can be claimed. But this thing. Less damage, slower, and heavier than a FS great staff (or even a normal steel great staff). I sincerely hope Verant simply misplaced a decimal point in the database, but it's equally likely they still are holding a grudge about FD.
