Greetings everyone, Thanks to many of you for your recent helpful advice to me a few months ago guiding me to be able to purchase a nice wooden Bokken for myself, which measures 40 inches long. At the time of my purchase of the Bokken, for whatever reason, I did not also purchase an accompanying carrying case for the Bokken. I am discovering now that it would be easier to transport and carry my Bokken with a carrying case. Thus, I am now looking for some kind of Bokken/sword/weapon carrying case for my Bokken. Some time ago I was given a gift card to use on Amazon. I did not purchase my Bokken from Amazon a few months ago, but rather from another merchant. Anyway, I checked that I have a $17 balance remaining on my gift card for Amazon. Thus, rather than dishing out more money to the original merchant, who sold me my bokken, to purchase a Bokken carrying case, I would prefer to purchase a carrying case from Amazon. Doing a search for carrying cases on Amazon, I see a broad range of prices. I observe that the “overall length” for these various carrying cases ranges from, say, about 33 inches to 42 inches. You may think to express what may seem as the obvious to me, that is, since my Bokken measures 40 inches, therefore, I should purchase a carrying case at least 40 to 42 inches long. However, I guess that I am looking for a “loophole” here. For example, one of the carrying cases I see that are at least 40 inches are: 42" Dojo Sword Carrying Bag for Katana Wakizashi Bokken Medium Medieval Sword by Munetoshi The above sells for $24.98, which, after paying for shipping, would be well over my $17 gift card balance. However, I also see on Amazon: Full Size Nylon Carrying Case for Japanese Shinai Bokken Foam Swords and Cosplay Swords The above sells for $6.71. Thus, after shipping cost, that would probably still be within my $17 gift card balance. However, it states for this particular carrying case: “Overall Length: 33 Inches” Please excuse my, what may be naïve question. The above carrying case is not long enough for my complete 40 inch bokken? I guess that I am a little confused because within the title of the above carrying case, they refer to it as “Full Size” Nylon Carrying Case. Thus, I believe the vast majority of Bokkens being about 40 inches, therefore, they are inferring that this particular “Full Size” Nylon carrying case can accommodate my 40 inch Bokken. (?) 1. Do you think that if I purchase this, apparently, 33 inch long “Full Size Nylon Carrying Case” for my 40 inch bokken, I will be satisfied? 2. Do you possibly have other ideas on what kind of carrying case I should purchase on Amazon in order to carry around my 40 inch bokken, while still remaining within my $17 Amazon gift card balance? Thank you very much. The best to all, Greetings!
