I've heard that samurai would actually sometimes fight with bokken rather than swords, and succeed in killing their opponent. But at the same time, it seems that due to the relatively light weight of most bokken, you couldn't give a fatal blow unless you way overpowered it with terrible form. Is it true that you could weild a bokken like you would a sword and still have very damaging strikes, or would you have to modify it and add much more power, or could it never really happen at all? Sorry to ask, but my curiosity was killing me. Thank you for any clarification you can give me.
