Weapon Engraving Services

Available fonts (style) 4 Japanese fonts, 3 English fonts
Depth The stronger the laser, the deeper the engraving. Superficial is quite discreet, standard is deep enough to stand forever, deep can go up to 1 mm depth and creates a burning effect within the engraving.
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. Please also note that initials cannot be translated into Japanese. Consequently, they will always be engraved in English.

These modules are identical and you can add them in the order you wish. Of course, we cannot engrave twice in the same place, so please pay attention to the chosen positions.
For more than 3 engravings, please contact us prior to placing your order.

    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 Tanto - Red/White Oak

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)

      Flat Spine | Rounded butt | Short Kissaki

      Red Oak, White Oak available

      Just like the Deluxe bokken, our deluxe tanto are available in white or red oak. They are made out of a single piece of wood from the south of the Kyushu islands (Japan). The shape and length are resolutely classic, making it a standard tanto that will be appreciated by all aikidoka.

      • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak.
      • Available finish: Standard Finish, Seido Special Finish
      • 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 with 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 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.
      For maintenance, we recommend at least 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).

      Great feeling to the touch

      This tanto feels extremely good in the hand and the shape is wonderful. Of course nothing you really need for daily practice, however i consider it as a cheap yet very luxury item in daily trainings.

      Another quality item

      Another order fullfiled with excellence. The wood as usual is crafted with amazing skill. This tanto is a light weight which makes the training quite confortable but still mantaining a high level of resistance.

      I´m a regular customer and I will continue to be.

      My First Tanto

      I don't have much to compare this with but I imagine it would be hard to make anything better than this item. The Tanto is made very well and is of excellent weight along with a nice feel in the hand. My second time shopping with seidoshop.com and It's been nothing but an amazing experience. This Item will not let you down. Friends are starting to ask me where I got everything because its such high quality. What would I do without seidoshop.com, the real MVP.

      白樫短刀

      白樫短刀ニスを購入しました。
      白樫といって白いとは限らないようですが、こちらのお品は白くて大変上品でした。
      惜しむらくは手に取って選べれば、中国製よりはこちらを必ず買うでしょう。
      見た目がとてもいいので、普及用サイズの木刀や小太刀も欲しくなります。
