    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

    • 5 and 6 Shaku Octagonal Bo

      Made in Japan (Kyushu region)
      Available woods: Red Oad & White Oak
      Length: 5 Shaku (151.5 cm) or 6 Shaku (181.8 cm)  |  Diameter: standard 30 mm
      Finish : urethane coated or oil polishing

      This "Hakkaku" octagonal 5/6 Shaku Bo is available in Ichiikashi (red oak) and Shirakashi (white oak), either varnished or unvarnished (oil polishing). The length is either 5 shaku (151.5 cm) or 6 shaku (181.8 cm), available in 30 mm diameter only.

      Octagonal Bo are mainly used in Okinawan Kobudo (Ryukyu Kobudo/Kobujutsu). The purpose of an octagonal Bo is to have an angular shape, which significantly increases the damage upon impact.
      Note that it isn't recommended to use a Hakkaku Bo for contact practice as it will leaves deep marks and may eventually break the opponent's weapons.

      • Choice of wood species: red oak or white oak
      • Diameter: 30 mm (1 sun).
      • Available finish: Urethane varnish or camellia oil polish.
      • Manufacturing workshop: Aramaki

      • BO CAN ONLY BE SHIPPED THROUGH UPS/FEDEX (Includes North America and Western Europe). Please check the "Shipping & Delivery Information" page if you want to check if it can ship to your country.
        All orders placed with a delivery address set up in another country will be automatically cancelled.

      Non varnished - Oil polish option:

      Urethane varnish is the "classic" finish for wooden weapons. This varnish protects the wood from moisture or drought, but the touch will be less pleasant than that of unvarnished weapons. When the wood is not varnished, it is necessary to treat it regularly (every two months on average) with oil (camellia, walnut, or linseed oil). Unvarnished weapons are meticulously polished with a fine grain sandpaper, which, in addition to the oiling work done by our team before shipping, justifies the extra charge. Only quality weapons can withstand a Japanese oil finish instead of varnishing. This is the finish we recommend to the most demanding practitioners.
