Product Information & Size Chart

  • Deluxe Bokken 101.5 cm Tsubaki

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Chevroned Spine | Rounded butt | Long Kissaki

    Tsubaki (Camellia japonica) available

    This Bokken has an almost identical finish to that of the red and white oak models and is available made from Tsubaki (Camellia japonica). The characteristic of this wood makes it a great classic of Japanese wood crafting. Not as luxurious as ebony, but an excellent choice for intermediate practitioners wishing to acquire a bokken that is also a quality work of art. Made by master Aramaki, this model undergoes a very strict wood selection and special attention is paid to its finish.

    Tsubaki is a light wood used for finesse and precision. This bokken will also make a great gift to someone who passed a grading examination.

    A bokken made from Camellia can safely be used by any practitioner.

    Due to quotas established by the Japanese government, Tsubaki (Camellia Japonica) is 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: Tsubaki (camellia japonica)
    • Finish: Non varnish (oil polish).
    • Manufacturing workshop: Aramaki for all models

    All our high-end bokken are offered non varnished (camellia oil polish finish). Note that unvarnished weapons are much more pleasant to the touch and during practice.
    Unvarnished weapons are more ecologically-friendly, but they require 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.

    Beautiful and Practical

    My Sunuke bokken took over three months to arrive but it was well worth the wait! By happy coincidence it happened to arrive on my birthday back in March and I have been using it for Suburi practice almost every day since then. It is truly a joy to handle, neither too light nor too heavy, and makes for a beautiful display piece when not in use. I'm looking forward to my next order from Seido!

    Thank you very much for your review.
    And it is the last batch the workshop was able to manufacture, it's probable you got one of the very last Sunuke Bokken that will ever be manufactured!

    Très beau boken

    Boken de grande qualité. Parfois lourd pour l'entraînement intensif. Bois superbe et agréable mais réclame de l'attention pour une utilisation régulière avec des chocs puissants. Le boken reste très beau et est bien équilibré. Beaucoup de plaisir pour une utilisation individuelle et facilite l'ensemble des mouvements à l'entrainement par son équilibre et son touché.

    スヌケ・鍔段有・ニス無・悪戦苦闘。

    8/19発注・9/1納品、椿油で拭いながら鑑賞して一週間、ひびを発見。。。
    おもての鎬、柾目筋に沿って0.1mm程の深さで幅100mm程の亀裂、ぱっと見では分からないが、灯りにかざして見ると、全体の濃茶の中で傷の部分だけが薄茶でくっきり浮かび上がる。
    愕然としたが、全般の木目・姿は素晴らしく、材料も希少価値のスヌケであり、捨てがたい、打ち合うわけでも無く機能的には問題無いので、観察したが二週間で猛暑の故か、幅が150mmに拡大した。
    木剣は10本所有しており、保管には十分に注意しているが、亀裂は初めての経験である。
    とにかく「亀裂以外が素晴らしく、この景色は二度と入手出来ない。」
    何度も悩みながら、漆で処理することにした、砥の粉と生漆の練ったものを擦込み、生漆の拭漆で処理してみた。
    結果は、練り込んだものが黒茶に変色して普通の木目の線となり、自然の景色になった。
    漆で強度も増して、胸を撫で下ろして鑑賞している。
    レビューに書くかどうか迷いましたが、木剣も生き物、こういうことも有り、処置も有る、と言うことを知ってもらいたく愚書致しました。

    Equipe, matériel et envoi très professionnels

    Le suivi du colis et le dédouanement se sont bien passes, 16 jours en tout mais ici c'est le bout du monde. L’équipe Seido suit tous les colis et envoie un mail a chaque étape. Merci a vous.
    Le boken en Tsubaki (Camellia japonica) est une merveille. Finition, couleur reflets abricot, équilibre, poids, un bonheur a manier. Le prix est tout a fait justifié, le bois et les artisans qualifiés devenant rares au Japon.
    Je compte commander d'autres articles auprès de Seido.

    木剣に魅了されて。

    71歳です、真剣の世界で過ごして来ました。50年使い古した赤樫の木刀じっくり観ていたら、
    急に、木工作品として興味が出て来ました。
    今回は椿を購入、構えた第一印象は、軽い。。。打ち合う勇気が出ない。。。500gでした。
    他の木刀は、700~900g、居合刀も同様、真剣は900g~1.5㎏を使っています。
    とにかく打つには怖い。鍛錬の素振りには軽すぎる。。剣を触れない演武には使える。。。です。
    しかし、美しい、椿油を充分に吸わせると木目が浮き出て命を感じます。
    真剣・特に古刀の鍛え肌に通じた感触、反り・切っ先・峯等の職人技も堪能出来ます。
    まだ、昔スポーツ店で購入した赤樫・スヌケしか知りませんが、他の材質・職人にも触れたくなりました。
    美術工芸品としては、素晴らしいです。

    Such beautiful craftsmanship

    This is my first bokken and first purchase from Seido. Shipping was very fast. I’d been to Japan twice, couldn’t find any of this quality. Very happy and looking forward to purchasing my next piece of equipment soon.
