    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

    • Jigen Ryu Bokken - Red/White Oak

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)
      Flat Spine | Flat Butt | Small Kissaki
      Red Oak or White Oak available

      This Bokken is made from a single piece of oak (red or white) from the southern islands of Kyushu (Japan). Similar in shape and curvature to a 'standard' Bokken, but thicker and therefore heavier and more resistant, this model is of course destined to Jigen Ryu practitioners but is also an ideal Suburi Bokken
      We can recommend this model for heavy contact practice, too, for any school using a classic shaped Bokken (and especially Aikido practitioners).

      This Bokken is not to be confused with the Yakumaru Jigen Ryu Bokken, a very differently shaped model that is suited for a different Jigen Ryu-like line.

      • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak.
      • Available finish: Urethane varnish or camellia oil polish.
      • Manufacturing workshop: Horinouchi 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.

      About Jigen Ryu School:

      The Jigen Ryu was founded by Togo Tobei Shigetaka, a Satsuma domain Samurai, at the end of the 16th century. Togo was a student of Terasaka Yakuro Masatsune, third Soke of the Tenshinsho Jigen school (the first of the "Jigen line") and Marume Kurandonosuke Tessai, founder of the Taisha Ryu. The story says that the new Jigen Ryu concepts were inspired by a sudden divine revelation while studying the Lotus Sutra which was also the reason he changed the characters used for "Jigen Ryu" from "self power revelation" to "sudden revelation". With his nomination as chief swordsmanship instructor of the Satsuma domain, Jigen Ryu became the main official Kenjutsu style thought in the domain.
      The Jigen Ryu is well known for its emphasis on the first strike (that much actually, that a second strike is not even considered) and focuses on striking power. Most of the training consists of strongly hitting a vertical pole or a real tree with raw wooden sticks (tree branches) collected in the woods. This is probably because their intensive training consumes the 'Bokken' (or tree branch) in just a few months. You can see a demonstration of the school here on our YouTube channel: Jigen Ryu Heiho Kenjutsu- 40th All Japan Kobudo Demonstration (2017)
      Jigen Ryu is not to be confused with Yakumaru Jigen Ryu, a different school born from the same Tenshinsho Jigen Ryu origin.
