Free transcriptions You can write your name in English and select a "Japanese" font, in which case we will take care of the transcription. Note that several translations exist for the same name and that we cannot accept claims. (Please use the text field to add a comment if the pronunciation is unusual. If you already have a translation, please attach a picture). We do not translate expressions or initials, only names or words. Requests for expressions translations will be ignored and refunded.

    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

    • Kashima Shin Ryu Bokken- White Oak

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)

      Flat Spine | Flat butt | Small Kissaki | Wood Tsuba

      White Oak available

      This Bokken is made from a single piece of oak white from the southern islands of Kyushu (Japan). It is a particularly heavy model with a rounded kissaki and a wooden tsuba. It is intended for practitioners "Kashima Shin Ryu" but it is also perfectly suited to the practice of suburi. Although the tsuba is tight to the bokken, we deliver it with a tsubadome (rubber tsuba block). This model is virtually identical to the Kurama Ryu bokken, except for the Kissaki design (Kurama Ryu model is made with "daikissaki").

      This is the bokken used in some forms of Kashima Shin Ryu Aikido training, including by students of Christian Tissier Shihan.

      This very specific bokken should suit not only practitioners of the Kashima Shin Ryu school but also Aikido practitioners in schools who have integrated some of its kenjustu practice.

      • Choice of wood species: white oak.
      • Available finish: Standard Finish or Seido Special Finish.
      • Manufacturing workshop: Aramaki

      (Due to quality issues, we do not offer the Fukuroshinai for this school at the moment. We do not know if and when this product will be available).

      Finish options:

      In 2021, with concerns for the workers, all workshops greatly reduced the number of urethane-varnished weapons and replaced the finish with 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 sandpaper), then we finish the weapon with high-quality beeswax. This finish makes the wood as smooth as it can be and guarantees 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 Kashima Shin Ryu School:

      An ancient school dating from the 16th century, Kashima Shin Ryu Kenjutsu is an example of a samurai campaign technique that has remained confidential for nearly three centuries. It is the practice and research of the master Kunii Zen'ya during the 20th century that allowed a slightly wider dissemination. Zen'ya had among others the inspiration to do away with the system of family lineage by appointing Master Humitake Seki as Shihanke (technical director), separating technique and management between the "Shihanke" and "Soke". This school teaches not only kenjutsu, jujutsu, but also the spear (sojutsu), the Battojutsu and some other traditional weapons. One of the teachers who popularized this school in France was Master Inaba, through among others, Christian Tissier (Aikido). It would seem, however, that Master Inaba separated from the official branch of the school. Kashima Shin Ryu Kenjutsu practice is largely focused on the development of power by forging the body (tanren) thanks in part to work using a heavy bokken reinforced by a thick wooden guard capable of absorbing powerful strikes.

      品質がよかった。

      商品を手にした感想は良い樫材を使っていると思いました。造りは荒牧製なので心配はしていませんでしたが、短期乾燥による材木の変色や曲りを懸念していましたが問題ありませんでした。同じ道具でも星道ショップさんは他店よりも質の高い武具を扱っていると間違いなくお薦め致します。

      Awesome!

      I ordered the Kashima Shin Ryu Bokken in red oak. It was shipped and delivered to me very quickly which is always great. The feel and balance of this bokken is awesome! I couldn't be more happy with this order. Seidoshop is the greatest, thank you so much!

      Bokken chêne blanc, finition spéciale Seido

      Très joli, doux et lisse au toucher avec la finition spéciale Seido ! Agréable à manipuler. Léger bémol, le bokken que j'ai reçu est un légèrement courbé (visible à l'oeil nu) vers la droite.

      superbes bokuto

      Nous avons reçu 7 bokuto kashima en chêne rouge et un en chêne blanc. Tous irréprochables! Qualité des bois et réalisation parfaites. Livraison ultra rapide. Pour les futurs acheteurs : tenir compte que le chêne blanc est quand même bien plus lourd que le chêne rouge

      早い!

      注文したらその週に届き早くて驚きでした。私は学校の体育時間で剣道した程度の素人ですが健康のために素振りをと考えて購入しました。職人さん動画を見て欲しくなったのですが、素人ながら触った感触がとても良く、気分転換にもなるので、これからも続けて行きたいと思います。

      起きて半畳寝て一畳天下取っても一合半 (鹿島神流)
      待った甲斐がありました

       納期半年。今回の木刀は「当たり」でした。
      店頭で木刀を選ぶときは
      1.木目が真っすぐ通っていること。斜めだったりするとそこから折れる可能性があります。
      2.節が入っていない事

       この2点を注視していますが今回のは木目が真っすぐで節も入っていません。木の根元に近い材が当たったのでしょうか?
       また、オプションの「星道仕上げ」も素晴らしい。触った時の「しっとり感」は今まで手にした木刀の中で経験したことのないものでした。

       ただ懸念は木材の不足。海外需要も伸びている中で後世のために武道用木材を植林育成する山を所有することを流派、団体の垣根を超えて資金調達、ボランティア管理する仕組みを作る時が来ているのではないかと考えさせられました。

      BOKUTO

      J'ai commandé récemment un bokken Kashima Shin Ryu en chêne blanc.
      Je suis très satisfaite de mon achat.
      Tout est très bien expliqué sur le site de Seidoshop, notamment en ce qui concerne les frais de douane. On n'a aucune mauvaise surprise.
      Le colis est arrivé dans les temps. Très bien emballé.
      La qualité du suivi de Seidoshop est remarquable, et toute l'équipe est vraiment au service du client.
      Les membres de l'équipe se présentent sur Seidoshop, et c'est important de pouvoir visualiser son interlocuteur quand on commande en ligne. Ça donne une dimension humaine telle qu'on peut la trouver "en live" quand on se déplace pour aller voir un artisan.
