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.

    Standard Plastic Tsuba

    Material: PVC
    Tsubadome (rubber ring) optional (white or brown).
    Size: ~7.8 cm x ~6 mm

    Basic brown plastic tsuba, a guard that will protect your hands during full contact practice, which is fixed on your bokken with a rubber ring.
    This plastic Tsuba is the only made in Japan plastic Tsuba designed for classic Bokken on the market and only exists in brown color.

    It will fit on all standard and high-end bokken, with or without groove, and on chuto (short bokken) and shoto (wakizashi), but might require a little filing depending on the exact shape of the blade (particularly at the mine).
    Please make sure you select the correct size as the hole is slightly smaller for Shoto size. The M (shoto) size can still be recut for a Bokken, but a Bokken Tsuba will be too large for a Shoto.

    Rigid Leather Tsuba for Bokken and Shoto

    Material: cow leather
    Tsubadome (rubber ring) optional (white or brown).
    Size: ~7.6 cm x ~7 mm

    Thick leather Tsuba, very solid. A little smaller than its sister product, the round leather Tsuba. Because leather is a "living" material, each Tsuba is unique, specially in its color. The emphasis is not placed on its appearance but this kind of Tsuba is an excellent model to effectively protect your hands!

    It will fit on all standard and high-end bokken, with or without groove, and on chuto (short bokken) and shoto (wakizashi), but might require a little filing depending on the exact shape of the blade (particularly at the mine). Please make sure you select the correct size as the hole is slightly smaller for Shoto size. The M (Shoto/Chuto) size can still be recut for a Bokken, but a Bokken Tsuba will be too large for a Shoto.
    In addition, note that this Tsuba cannot be fitted on a thin Bokken (Yagyu, Yagyu Shinkage, Niten Ichi Ryu, etc.)

    Please note that the Tsuba is shipped in its original shape. If you would like the Tsuba to be fitted with a particular weapon in your order, please specify it via the comment box of the shopping cart page. We will only fit the Tsuba on Standard and Deluxe models, not on Koryu Bokken.

    This is the model we recommend to practitioners looking for a big leather Tsuba to fit a standard/deluxe Bokken or a thick koryu bokken.

    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

    • Deluxe Chuto 91.5 cm - Red/White Oak or Isu no Ki

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)

      Chevronned Spine | Rounded butt | Long Kissaki

      Red Oak, White Oak or Isu no Ki available

      This top model is available in red and white oak, and Isu no Ki. It is characterized by a more thorough finish than the standard model and a more stringent selection of the wood used. The red oak model is made of high-quality "Ichiikashi". White oak such as Isu no Ki are also more thoroughly selected, notably denser on the standard model.

      Bokken are divided into two categories: The "Daito" (standard length Bokken) and the "Chuto" (slightly shortened Bokken). The Chuto Bokken are used in certain schools specifically for practice regarding distance, in Aikido they are mainly for children. The Chuto Bokken is 10 cm shorter than the standard model and this makes it the perfect weapon for children smaller than 150 cm. Because they are not supposed to practice heavy contact techniques, we do not offer a tsuba for this model. The standard tsuba sold individually are adaptable but remain loose.

      • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak, Isu no ki.
      • Manufacturing workshop: Aramaki

      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).
