    Deluxe Bokken 101.5 cm - Sunuke or Tsubaki

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Chevroned Spine | Rounded butt | Long Kissaki

    Sunuke and Tsubaki (Camellia japonica) available

    This Bokken has an almost identical finish to that of the red and white oak models is available in Sunuke and wood Tsubaki (Camellia japonica) woods. These woods have radically opposite technical characteristics but both are great classics of the Japanese wood crafting. Not as luxurious as ebony, these are excellent choices for intermediate practitioners wishing to acquire a bokken that is also a quality work of art. Made by master Nidome, these models undergo a very strict wood selection and special attention is paid to finishing.

    Sunuke is a heavy wood used to make bokken for power work while Tsubaki is a lighter wood used for more finesse and precision. These bokken will also make great gifts to someone who passed grading examination.

    While Camellia can safely be used by all, Sunuke is particularly heavy and it must be used with caution and recommended for experienced practitioners only.

    Due to quotas established by the Japanese government, these woods are available in limited quantities. Therefore, in case of shortage, a manufacturing delay of 5 to 6 weeks is to be expected for restocking.

    • Choice of wood species: Sunuke or Tsubaki (camellia japonica)
    • Finish: Non varnish (oil polish).
    • Optional Tsuba: plastic or strong leather (rubber tsubadome provided).
    • Manufacturing workshop: Nidome / Aramaki for all models

    All our high-end bokken are offered non varnish (camellia oil polish finish). Note that unvarnished weapons are much more pleasant to the touch as well as usage.
    Unvarnished weapons are more ecologically-friendly, but they requires regular (monthly) maintenance with oil (camellia or wood maintenance oil) and they can only be made from the finest, Japanese quality woods. Given the need for maintenance of these weapons, our stocks are limited. Also, since the craftsmen must select the best wood possible to manufacture these weapons, the processing time is longer than for varnished weapons. If out of stock or made to order, the shipping time can take up to 6 weeks in case of shortage.
