    6 Shaku Deluxe Bo

    Made in Japan (Kyushu region)

    Available woods: Red Oad & White Oak

    Lenght: 5 Shaku (151.5 cm) or 6 Shaku (181.8 cm)  |  Diameter: standard 30 mm

    Finish : urethan coated or oil polishing

    This classic 5/6 Shaku Bo is available in Ichiikashi (red oak) and Shirakashi (white oak), either varnished or unvarnished (oil polishing). The length is a standard 6 shaku (181.8 cm), available in 30 mm diameter only.

    The red and white oak models will sustain violent contacts during practice.

    In Aikido, the Bo was used by the founder Morihei Ueshiba to demonstrate some of the principles of aikido. Morihei Ueshiba was also trained in "Bo Jutsu", and teached its principles to Hikitsuchi Michio Sensei: as a consequence it is now mainly used in Hikitsuchi sensei's line.

    • Choice of wood species: red oak or white oak
    • Diameter: 30 mm (1 sun).
    • Available finish: Urethane varnish or camellia oil polish.
    • Manufacturing workshop: Horinouchi for varnished models and Nidome for oil polished models.

    • BO CAN ONLY BE SHIPPED THROUGH UPS/FedEx IN THE FOLLOWING COUNTRIES : USA, Mexico, Canada, all the European Union, Switzerland and Norway.
      All orders placed with a delivery address set up in another country will be automatically cancelled, as the classic Japan Post shipping system does not accept packages longer than 150 cm.
      * It is not necessary to apply for the "Shipping Upgrade Option during checkout. For this item, we will upgrade the shipping method free of charge.

    Non varnished - Oil polish option (+ 1,000 JPY):

    Urethane varnish is the "classic" finish for wooden weapons. This varnish protects the wood from moisture or drought, but the touch will be less pleasant than that of unvarnished weapons. When the wood is not varnished, it is necessary to treat it regularly (every two months on average) with oil (camellia, walnut, or linseed oil). Unvarnished weapons are meticulously polished with a fine grain sandpaper, which, in addition to the oiling work done by our team before shipping, justifies the extra charge. Only quality weapons can withstand a Japanese oil finish instead of varnishing. This is the finish we recommend to the most demanding practitioners.
