- COVID-19 INFORMATION -
Japan Post has decided to suspend all shipments to more than 120 countries. FedEx shipments are suspended worldwide. DHL has implemented a significant price surcharge and suspended shipment to some countries and updates partial suspensions daily. Therefore, Seido is no longer in capacity to promise that your orders will ship on the announce date below.
  • We recommend all customers to upgrade the shipping method at checkout if the displayed shipping method is "Japan Post".
  • We will email you on or before the announced shipping date if your order cannot ship. We may offer you a paid shipping upgrade if you want your order shipped via one of the few priority services that remains active with one of our carriers (FedEx, UPS and DHL).
  • Packages that are longer than 120 cm are subject to additional restrictions so all packages containing weapons longer than 119 cm are more subject to delays than others.
  • As of today, we are still able to ship almost normally to:
    United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Singapore, Finland, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Norway, Romania, Mexico, Denmark, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Philippines, South Korea and Slovakia.
    (This is not a guarantee that we will be able to ship, especially items above 120 cm in length, but we do not expect major issues for those destinations).
  • Other orders will be put prepared, packed and stored until one of the 5 cariers we are working with reopens the destination (you will be updated via email).

Product Information & Size Chart

  • Choji Abura - Clove Oil

    Made in Japan

    Size: M > 20 mL / L > 100 mL
    Contains: Clove and mineral oils

    A Japanese traditional oil (made from cloves) that is applied on the blade of the Shinken (Japanese swords) and whiped off with the Nuguigami. The Choji abura prevents the blade from rusting.
    Choji oil for sword is actually a mix of Choji oil and mineral based oil, known to be the best mix for Tamahagane (Shinken steel) maintenance.

    A dozen different brands exists in Japan for Choji oil. We offer the one used at the Minosaka workshop when they have to maintain Shinkens.

    As Iaito are made of Zinc/Aluminium alloy, it does not require oil maintenance but may help to nourish the wooden Saya from the inside when applied regularly. This traditional oil is available in two sizes (M and L) and is labeled with the Kanji for "Sword Oil".
