    Standard Plastic Tsuba

    Material: PVC

    Tsubadome (rubber ring) optional (white or brown).

    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).

    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) size can still be recut for a Bokken, but a Bokken Tsuba will be too large for a Shoto.

    Please note that the Tsuba is shipped in its original shape. The ajustments have to be made by yourself.

    Camellia Oil - Tsubaki abura

    Made in Japan (Isu Islands)

    Ingredient: 100% Tsubaki Oil

    Size: M > 70 mL / L > 118 mL

    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.

    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 Shoto 54.5 cm - Sunuke or Tsubaki

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)
      Chevroned Spine | Rounded butt | Long Kissaki
      Sunuke and Tsubaki (Camellia japonica) available

      The finish of this Shoto is almost identical to that of the white and red oak. Made from either Sunuke or Tsubaki (Camellia japonica), two types of wood that feature completely opposite characteristics, though both being outstanding classics of the Japanese wood crafting. Although they are not as luxurious as e.g. ebony, these are superb choices for intermediate practitioners looking for a Shoto that is also a quality work of art. Crafted by master Nidome and Arakami, the timber used for these models is exclusively selected and special attention is paid to the finish.

      Sunuke is a dense and hence heavy wood used to make weapons for power work whereas Tsubaki is a lighter wood suiting a practice based on finesse and precision. These Shoto are also a great gift idea.

      While a Shoto from camellia can safely be used by everybody, Sunuke is particularly heavy and it must be used with caution and it is therefore recommended for experienced practitioners only.

      Due to quotas established by the Japanese government, these woods are available only in limited quantities. Therefore, in case of shortage, a manufacturing delay of 4 to 5 weeks is to be expected for restocking.

      • Choice of wood species: Sunuke or Tsubaki (camellia japonica)
      • Finish: Non varnish (oil polish).
      • Manufacturing workshop: Nidome / Aramaki for all models

      All our high-end wooden weapons 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.
