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.

    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: White Oak
      Lenght: 5 Shaku (151.5 cm) or 6 Shaku (181.8 cm, White Oak Only)
      Diameter: 30 mm (1 sun).
      Finish: Standard Finish or Seido Special Finish

      This classic Bo is available in Shirakashi (white oak), unvarnished (oil polishing).

      The white oak models will sustain violent contact 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 taught its principles to Hikitsuchi Michio Sensei: as a consequence, it is now mainly used in Hikitsuchi sensei's line.

      • Choice of wood species: white oak
      • Diameter: 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 with 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 sandpaper), then we finish the weapon with high-quality beeswax. This finish makes the wood as smooth as it can be and guarantees excellent protection for several months.
      For maintenance, we recommend at least oiling 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.

      Beautiful Bo

      As soon as I took the Bo (6 shaku & red oak) out of the package I was surprised and delighted. Very smooth finish and the figure of the wood is visually striking. Also quite straight. And it all came well packaged and very quickly. The wood very well matches the color and figure of the Jo I also ordered.

      6 Shaku Standard Bo

      I purchased a Standard 6ft Bo made from white oak with a standard finish along with a cotton/linen bag. The Bo is of the very good quality and has a very good balance and feel. Delivery was within 10-14 days of purchase which was fantastic. I intend to purchase more products from this company as required in the future.

      Even Better Than I Imagined!

      The quality of the craftsmanship is superb, I’m extremely happy with the bo! It’s perfectly straight and balanced, I’m very happy that I opted for the “Seido special” finish as well. Definitely a work of art, I’ll almost feel bad when I use it for practice.
