One of the bokken I got at AX broke today.

How'd it break?

That, and most people I know who actually use bokken on a regular basis except them to break periodically. That's why they're generally pretty cheap.

Now, if you bought a good katana and *that* broke, on the other hand...

Diagonally, at about the half-way point, while I was using it against one I got for my brother. It just snapped in half and the top flew off. I'd checked before I started using it, and saw a few dents along the "blade" but no cracks or anything.

The one I bought in january is starting to do the same thing - but on mine you can just see a fracture emerging along the line of the woodgrain. As AC said, though - they're generally pretty cheap, and not made to last the way it's steel counterpart is.
