    Camellia Oil - Tsubaki abura

    Made in Japan (Isu Islands)

    Ingredient: 100% Tsubaki Oil

    Size: 70 mL (2,3 oz) / 118 mL (3.9 oz) / 1 L (33.8 oz) / 1.8 L (60.9 oz)

    This oil has been produced on the island of Toshima (Isu Shoto), off Tokyo, for more than a century. It is used by many Japanese wood workers as well as specialists in ancient blade (shinken) who are looking for a more stable oil than the Choji oil.

    The 70 and 118 mL are conditionned in glass bottles. 1 and 1.8 L are conditionned in metal cans. Cans are not available in stock and require about a week before shipping.

    Treatment with Camellia oil is recommended by the craftsmen who make our wooden weapons. The regular oiling is necessary for unvarnished weapons. It is recommended also for the maintenance of Iaito and Shinken.

    Utilization on wooden weapons:
    Once every 2 months in the wet season, 2 times per month during dry season. For a better preservation of your weapons, it is advisable to carefully rub them with a dry cloth after each use. When you apply the oil, clean the wood surface by rubbing vigorously with a dry cloth, then apply the oil in a thin layer directly with the hand. Allow to dry.
    If your weapons are not painted it will not be necessary to sand, but if they are, sanding will help the wood to absorb more oil.

    Note that this Camelia oil is initialy intended for skin and hair care. We've selected this oil for it's unmatched quality: 100% pure camelia oil, no additive, cold pressed, cosmetic grade, almost odorless, and halal certified.

     

    Product Information & Size Chart

    • Classic Aikido Jo - 4.21 Shaku

      Made in Japan (Kyushu region)

      Available woods: Red Oad, White Oak, & Buna

      Lenght: 4.21 Shaku (127.6 cm) | Diameter: 24 mm, 27 mm or 30 mm.

      Finish : Standard Finish or Seido Special Finish

      This classic Aikido Jo is available in Ichiikashi (red oak), Shirakashi (white oak), or Buna (Japanese beech). The length is a standard 4.21 shaku (127.6 cm), with 3 different diameters to choose from.

      The standard thickness is 24 mm (8 bu) and the 27, and 30 mm models are designed to work tanren (reinforcement), which is very important in some Aikido schools. The 27 mm model is very strong, which also makes it a great Jo practice with very violent contacts.

      While the red and white oak models will sustain violent contacts during practice, Buna is slightly less resistant and will therefore not be suited for practice at full power.

      Buna is significantly lighter, but still fairly resistant in comparison to its weight. A 27 mm Buna Jo will have a weight and solidity comparable to the white Oak 24 mm while offering a better grip, especially for practitioners with large hands, and it is smoother - more pleasant to touch - so it slip better in hands than oak. Buna is a wood available in fairly large quantity and well managed in Japan, making the choice of a Buna Jo a good choice if you care about sustainability, and it's color is not that far from white oak.

      All the classic Jo are adapted to the practice of Aikido but also Jodo.

      • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak, Buna
      • Diameter: 24~25 mm (8bu), 27 mm (9bu) or 30 mm (1 sun).
      • Available finish: Standard Finish or Seido Special Finish
      • Manufacturing workshop: Aramaki

      Finish options:

      In 2021, with concerns for the workers, all workshops greatly reduced the number of urethane varnished weapons and replaced the finish by a "Candle Wax". Seido is now transitioning to a new finish offer for the majority of its weapons.

      Standard Finish: At Seido, we complete the workshop finish with Camelia oil treatment by default. This is the standard Seido finish.
      We do not apply any additional polishing for this finish, so some weapons might have a slightly rough surface.
      For maintenance, we recommend that you oil your weapons about once a month with a vegetal based oil.

      Seido Special Finish: For this special Finish, we first apply a Camelia oil polish (oiling and sanding the weapons with oiled sand paper), then we finish the weapon with high quality bee wax. This finish makes the wood as smooth as it can be and guarantee an excellent protection for several months.
      For maintenance, we recommend at least to oil your weapons every month or so. You can also apply wax a few hours after oiling your weapons (if some oil remains on the wood, remove it with a piece of cloth or tissue).

      9bu Jo

      Absolutely beautiful red oak Jo. Very straight, very smooth. I got the 9bu because I have big hands and it feels great. The craftsmanship is superior to others I’ve had. The engraving is a wonderful way to personalize it as well. Thank you Seido for a great product.
