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.

Jiki Shinkage Ryu Tanto - Red/White Oak or Isu no Ki
Made in Japan (Kyushu)
Flat Spine | Rounded butt | Short Kissaki
Red Oak, White Oak or Isu no Ki available
Used primarily in the school Jiki Shinkage to practice techniques against Naginata, this Tanto, also classified as Shoto (Wakizashi) by the Jiki Shinkage Ryu, is available in white oak, red oak and Isu no Ki. The relatively long, thin and pointed shape allows to keep it almost as light as a standard Tanto, ensuring a fast and easy handling.
The Tanto Jiki Shinkage Ryu is 7 cm longer than the standard model used in Aikido, and therefore a great instrument to do Tanto Dori with heightened attention, while being an excellent educational tool for teachers. This Tanto is used by several schools, including the Kishinkai in France.
- Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak, Isu no ki.
- Available finish: Standard Finish or Seido Special Finish.
- Manufacturing workshop: Aramaki for all models
- We also offer the Jiki Shinkage Thin Bokken.
In 2021, with concerns for the workers, all workshops greatly reduced the number of urethane varnished weapons and replaced the finish by a "Candle Wax". Seido is now transitioning to a new finish offer for the majority of its weapons.
Standard Finish: At Seido, we complete the workshop finish with Camelia oil treatment by default. This is the standard Seido finish.
We do not apply any additional polishing for this finish, so some weapons might have a slightly rough surface.
For maintenance, we recommend that you oil your weapons about once a month with a vegetal based oil.
Seido Special Finish: For this special Finish, we first apply a Camelia oil polish (oiling and sanding the weapons with oiled sand paper), then we finish the weapon with high quality beeswax. This finish makes the wood as smooth as it can be and guarantee an excellent protection for several months.
For maintenance, we recommend at least to oil your weapons every month or so. You can also apply wax a few hours after oiling your weapons (if some oil remains on the wood, remove it with a piece of cloth or tissue).

About Jiki Shinkage Ryu Naginata:
The Kashima Shinden Jikishinkage Ryu evolved from the Shinkage Ryu and the Kage Ryu, which both have disappeared. Its beginnings are situated in the 16th century and attributed to Matsumoto Bizen No Kami Naokatsu.
But the Naginata version is much more recent. Developed in the late 19th century by Satake Yoshinori, a former Jiki Shinkage Ryu student and his whife Satake Shigeo. An emphasis is placed on preserving the Kata in its original form and leaves very little room for improvisation. This art was rapidly introduced into girl's schools, which explains why most practitioners are, still today, women. Jiki Shinkage Ryu Naginata became famous after the victory of several well-known teachers over Kendo practitioners, but the school does no longer focus on competition.
