    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.

    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 Daisho Set - Bokken & Shoto - Red/White Oak

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)
      Chevroned Spine | Rounded butt | Long Kissaki
      Available in Red or White oak

      These high-end models are available either in red or white oak. They are characterized by an improved finish in comparison with the standard models and by a drastic selection of the wooden pieces used. The red oak model is made from a high-quality Ichiikashi. The white oak is also carefully selected.

      The red and white oak Shoto correspond to the most widespread standard models used in the practice of Aikido, Kendo, or Iaido.

      This set is offered with a 1,000 YEN discount in comparison with separate purchases.

      We also sell the Deluxe Bokken and the Deluxe Shoto outside of this set.

        • Choice of wood species: Red oak, White oak.
        • Available Finish: Standard Finish, Seido Special Finish
        • Manufacturing workshop: Aramaki, Nidome or Matsuzaki

      Finish options:

      In 2021, with concerns for the workers, all workshops greatly reduced the number of urethane-varnished weapons and replaced the finish with "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 finishes 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 oiling 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 guarantee excellent protection for several months.
      We recommend at least oiling your weapons every month or so for maintenance. 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).

      Ajanto (UK)
      Isu no Ki set

      The delivery between Japan and UK was very fast, my set arrived a day early.

      While I opted for the standard finish I received bokuto and kodachi as raw wood, which I did in fact prefer.

      The wood is beautiful and the balance and hand feel is so good. I’ve tried both red and white oak, the Isu bokuto is in the middle, for the weight, which is what I have been wanting.

      The kodachi has a really good weight and balance to it. It’s heavy enough that tenouchi can be employed properly.

      I’m sure the colour tone varies, the ones I received were darker wood, probably from closer to the heart wood. So I have a bokuto and kodachi that looks more like sunuke- it really is nice.

      The only negative is that the carving feels like it was done quickly, the edges are not perfected (wavy not straight) which surprises me for a Japanese workshop. Perhaps with time I will desensitise from it, but it’s disappointing to notice it.

      However, these are still beautiful pieces and I know they will serve me for decades. I hold them and they instantly feel part of me.

      Thank you.

      A joy to hold and to use

      This set is perfect. The bokken and shoto arrived from Japan 5 full days ahead of time, even with the personalized laser engraving. I ordered the unvarnished white oak, and the feel of the weapons are intimate and immediate... you can feel your energy pass directly from your hands into the blades, and in the other direction, down through your hands into your stance and feet. The difference is undeniable from lesser weapons I have used. Truly, this is what you are looking for and dreaming about in tools that will last and aid your practice.
