    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).
    • Optional Tsuba: plastic or strong leather (rubber tsubadome provided).
    • 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.
