In Japan, Wooded Swords (also called Bokken, or Bokutō - the latter being the Japanese name of this weapon) are Samurai training swords. Since Crono starts the game with this weapon, it alludes to his start as a swordsman. The introduction in the PlayStation release of the game depicts Crono practicing sword techniques with a wooden blade, furthering this idea.
