    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

    • Kurama Ryu Bokken - Red/White Oak

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)
      Flat Spine | Flat Butt | Long Kissaki | Wood Tsuba
      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). The Kurama Ryu Bokken is quite specific: long, thick, heavy, straight, with a fitted thick wooden Tsuba. Intended for Kurama Ryu practitioners, and not recommended for usage in other arts, unless it is for pure personal research.

      Although the wooden Tsuba fits tightly on the Bokken, we deliver it with a Tsubadome (rubber Tsuba block). This model is almost identical to the Kashima Shin Ryu Bokken, what differs, however, is the Kissaki (tip) design. (The Kashima Shin Ryu model is made with a short Kissaki).

      • 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 Kurama Ryu School:

      Kurama Ryu is a Kenjutsu system founded during the Tensho era (late 16th century) by Ono Shokan in the Kanto area (Edo, Tokyo). Most archives were lost during World War II and very little is known today about the founder. Kurama Ryu is still practiced today, mainly in the Shuseikan Dojo in Yokutsu (Tokyo), with a lineage that goes back to Kaneko Sukesaburo and Shibata Emori (the dojo's founder).
      Kurama Ryu acquired its popularity with the help of Shibata Emori, instructor for the Tokyo metropolitan police, involved in the creation of the Keishi Ryu (police Kenjutsu) into which a Kurama Ryu Kata was introduced. It is the "Henka" Kata, more often called "Makiotoshi" by Kendoka, one of the most important and powerful technique to master. It is interesting to see that the Kurama Ryu Bokken is somehow similar in shape and weight to the Keishi Ryu Bokken.
      Through Keishi Ryu, Kurama Ryu also influenced the creation and development of Kendo.
