Well, he has many different swords but those "official" swords looks like a pair of katana to me. If you want to do his wooden swords I think two dark brown bokken would be just fine.

Katana are longer and have more of a curve to them. These swords appear to be in the style of Ninjato (aka ninjaken, shinobigatana), the theoretical/fictionalized sword used by Ninja. It's the same sword(s) used by Leonardo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Yeah, you could probably use ninja styled bokken, and make handguards shaped like those. Depending on the tools you have available you could cut them out of wood, or even heavy plastic.

Also note that the swords are two different lengths. One is longer than the other by several inches at least.
