Product Information & Size Chart

  • Hanmaru Tonfa - Semicircular - Red Oak

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)
    Red Oak only
    Urethane Varnished
    Total length: 44 cm
    Sold by unit (1) or by pair (2)

    Hanmaru means 'semicircular' and refers to the shaft's shape, rounded on the external side of the Tonfa. Its dimensions are based on the squared shaft model. The semicircular shaft allows smoother parrying whilst the shaft is kept thick enough to withstand heavy contacts. This Tonfa is a bit lighter than the square model, but still significantly heavier than the very light rounded model.

    Tonfa length: The handle is fixed at about 8 cm to 9 cm from the tip, which means that on a 44 cm Tonfa, you will have about 34 cm in length from the handle to your elbow.

    Handle size: The handle full length is 11 cm, including the knob that prevents the Tonfa from slipping when performing motion techniques. First of all, measure your hand's width, at the level of the knuckles, with the hand stretched out on a table. For the standard handle: hand width up to 9 cm.

    Tonfa Order Disclaimer

    Tonfa 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 Tonfa is not prohibited in your country before placing your order.
    Tonfa 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 Tonfa or a Nunchaku. If you wish to purchase other products at the same time and use PayPal, we recommend to order the Tonfa or Nunchaku 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.

    Wonderful Craftsmanship!

    I received my Hanmaru Tonfa today and am really thrilled with the quality and workmanship. It is really great to practice with a genuine kubodo weapon hand made in Japan. These tonfa are well worth the price and something I am truly proud to own. Thank you to Seido's talented craftsman and despite current hardships, I hope they will continue to produce these wonderful products for many years to come.

    Well made, beautifully crafted. The best tradional tonfa available. Great service from true artists.

    Excellent crafted wooden tonfa!

    Oak used to make this tonfa is quite good and delicately crafted. How the handle anchored to the body follows the traditional eastern way. It was not uncommon decades ago but seldom nowadays. Most martial art stuff suppliers provide plastic tonfa only! I gave four star because the price is too high.

    Thank you very much for the nice review!
    Unfortunately, that kind of authentic craftsmanship does not come cheap, particularly when it is made entirely in Japan. For sure, cheaper items can be found on the market when they come from neighboring countries where salaries are lower, but the Japanese quality has its price!
    In any case, we're glad that you appreciated the quality, and we hope it will go on giving you satisfaction over time.

    Top Quality Weapons that easily rival the Shureido brand.

    I purchased a set of the large oil finished Tonfa as a trial to compare with Shureido and I could not be happier. They are top quality and very well crafted. The weight is a bit heavier than the Shureido Large Sized Tonfa and is heavy toward the tail end. The wood, fit and finish craftsmanship is equal to if not superior than my set of Shureido Tonfa. I discovered and tried the Seido Shop due to there being virtually zero availability of Shureido wooden Kobudo weapons lately and can honestly say Seido Shop is a very good manufacturer of authentic and professional level Kobudo Weapons. I would hope that Tekko may at some point become available through the Seido Shop as well. The customer service is superior to most every other supplier of Budo Goods I have tried. Do not hesitate on ordering as quality is what you will receive. These are by no means cheap in price, but are also by no means "cheaply" crafted so you can buy nice or buy twice. This set will surely last a lifetime, and only become more cherished via wear in and patina. Thank you Seido Shop for delivering on your claims the first time error free!
