From 4 workshops in 2019, the wooden weapon industry in Japan is now reduced to one workshop at full capacity and one workshop with reduced capacity. For this reason, all orders for custom-made items have a production time of about 5 months without guarantees. We will contact you if the order is delayed, but please know that delays are now very common for those orders. Feel free to read our blog article for more information on the situation.

Product Information & Size Chart

  • Extra Heavy Octagonal Hakkaku Furibo - Benigashi

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)
    Available weights: ~2.5 kg, ~3 kg, ~4 kg, ~5 kg, ~6 kg, ~7 kg, ~8 kg, ~9 kg and ~10 kg
    Benigashi only

    The octagonal Furibo are very popular among practitioners who simply want to improve muscular strength. Even the heaviest Suburito of this type are extremely well balanced. This model is available with a weight up to 10 kg. The 2.5 kg and 3 kg models are available in stock, other models require one month of production.

    Benigashi is one of the Japanese word for a timber called "Yacal" that originates from Southern Asia. Yacal provides valuable woods, aromatic essential oils, balsam and resins, but it is rather weak to chocs and contact practice in comparison to red/white oaks. In addition, it often presents small cracks, especially on very thick and heavy models.
    It is currently the only timber available in Japan that allows the production of Furibo over 2 kg. Being exclusively used by the Aramaki workshop, it is the only workshop currently capable of producing extra heavy Suburito.

    Unlike the Suburito that are designed to be swung in movements that reproduce totally or partially the cuts practiced in Kata, this Furibo must be used with a particular technique that reverts to the entire body. It is important to focus on the breathing technique and the bending of the legs, especially when using the heavy models. Do not attempt to use it if you do not know how, or you might hurt your back badly.

    Disclaimer

    The Suburito are designed to work on muscular strength and physical power. Suburi practice can be beneficial to all practitioners, but it must be done, at least initially, supervised by a teacher. Improper use of the Suburito can quickly lead to tendinitis, shoulder and back pain etc.
