Average rating: 4.9/5 View/write review(s)
From 4 workshops in 2019, the wooden weapon industry in Japan is now reduced to one workshop at full capacity and one workshop with reduced capacity. For this reason, all orders for custom-made items have a production time of about 5 months without guarantees. We will contact you if the order is delayed, but please know that delays are now very common for those orders. Feel free to read our blog article for more information on the situation.

Weapon Engraving Services

Available fonts (style) 4 Japanese fonts, 3 English fonts
Depth The stronger the laser, the deeper the engraving. Superficial is quite discreet, standard is deep enough to stand forever, deep can go up to 1 mm depth and creates a burning effect within the engraving.
Free transcriptions You can write your name in English and select a "Japanese" font, in which case we will take care of the transcription. Note that several translations exist for the same name and that we cannot accept claims. (Please use the text field to add a comment if the pronunciation is unusual. If you already have a translation, please attach a picture). We do not translate expressions or initials, only names or words. Requests for expressions translations will be ignored and refunded. Please also note that initials cannot be translated in Japanese. Consequently, they will always be engraved in English.
Number of engravings You can order a maximum of 3 engravings per weapon from this page. The modules N1, N2, and N3 correspond to the engravings Number 1, number 2 and number 3. These modules are identical and you can add them in the order you wish. Of course, we cannot engrave twice in the same place, so please pay attention to the chosen positions.
For more than 3 engravings, please contact us prior to placing your order.
Limitations We engrave in Japanese and English only (no Chinese, Korean, etc.) For any special request (logo/design), contact us prior to your order. (Undiscussed demands will be ignored).

    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

    • 5 and 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: 24 mm (8 bu), 27 mm (9 bu) or 30 mm (1 sun).
      Finish : Standard Finish or Seido Special Finish

      This classic 5/6 Shaku Bo is available in Ichiikashi (red oak) and Shirakashi (white oak), either varnished or unvarnished (oil polishing).

      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.

      We offer this model in 3 different diameter. The standard is 30 mm (1 sun) and the standard length is 6 shaku. For this reason, only the 6 shaku / 30 mm models (red and white oak) are available in stock. Other models are made to order in about 4 weeks.

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

      • BO CAN ONLY BE SHIPPED THROUGH UPS/FEDEX (Includes Asia, North America and Europe). For other countries, please contact us prior to placing your order.

      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 beeswax. 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).

      Disclaimer

      We rigidly sort through all our in stock products, selecting and finally selling only what meets our standards. Of all the wooden weapons we receive, 10 to 15% are eliminated and mostly destroyed. We are proud of the fact that our quality control is the strictest on the market.
      However, we cannot offer such a sorting for custom made products and those can therefore show minor flaws like a slight curvature, particularly on the 24 mm and 27 mm Bo.
