Deluxe Semi Octagonal Nunchaku - Red Oak
Made in Japan (Kyushu)
With cord or chain
Available in 30 cm, 33 cm and 36 cm
The Hanmaru (semi-octagonal) Nunchaku is a classic Japanese Nunchaku, made of Japanese wood. It is designed for intense Kobudo and Karate training.
The Nunchaku length in Japan commonly is between 30 cm and 36 cm, so we offer this model in 3 different sizes.
Hanmaru means "half rounded". Standard Japanese Nunchaku are actually octagonal, so in this case, half of the shaft (top part) is rounded, and the other half (bottom part) features a classic Hakkaku (octagonal) shape.
Hence, the rounded part makes the tip of the Nunchaku (where the cord/chain are attached) slightly thinner than on the octagonal version. This is designed to give more smoothness to rolling techniques.
- Choice of wood species: red oak only
- Available finish: Urethane varnish or camellia oil polish
- Manufacturing workshop: Matsuzaki for all models
Non varnished - Oil polish option:
All our high-end weapons are available either varnished with urethane or polished with camellia oil. The latter is more pleasant to the touch and these unvarnished weapons are also more ecologically-friendly, but they require regular (monthly) maintenance with oil (camellia or wood maintenance oil). Further, they can only be made from the finest timber of Japanese quality. Given the need for maintenance, our stocks are limited. Also, since the craftsmen must select the best wood possible to manufacture these Bokken and Jo, the processing time is longer than for varnished weapons. Please note that the oil polish can darken the wood significantly.

Nunchaku Order DisclaimerNunchaku can be considered as weapons in some countries. Although, by experience, we know there is no problem with North America and most European countries, we recommend checking that the import of Nunchaku is not prohibited in your country before placing your order.
Nunchaku are made to order and Seido shall not be held responsible for any difficulties, import refusal or other trouble at customs clearance. In the event of this occurring, only limited refunds (depending on the level of customization) can be granted.
Also, please note that due to international payment regulations, PayPal payment is not available at checkout when ordering a Nunchaku or a Tonfa. If you wish to purchase other products at the same time and use PayPal, we recommend to order the Nunchaku or Tonfa separately. We can still ship all items together if the orders are placed within a few hours and a comment is added in the comment field.
