Due to the closing of the Horinouchi workshop in September 2019, the remaining 3 workshops are under heavy stress, as they never experienced before. Therefore, we are currently not able to guarantee the displayed shipping date estimation for this product and variations in both direction (shipping earlier than announced or slight delays) are to be expected.
|Available fonts (style)||4 Japanese fonts, 3 English fonts|
|Depth||The stronger the laser, the deeper the engraving. Superficial is quite discreet, standard is deep enough to stand forever, deep can go up to 1 mm depth and creates a burning effect within the engraving.|
|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. Please also note that initials cannot be translated in Japanese. Consequently, they will always be engraved in English.|

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)

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
Red Oak Nagamaki Bokken
Made in Japan (Kyushu)
Flat Spine | Rounded Butt | Long Kissaki
Red Oak, Urethan Varnish Only
The Nagamaki is an ancient Japanese weapon that is related to the Japanese sword (Katana). As its name says (長巻 means "long wrapping"), it is formed of a very long Tsuka wrapping that can cover up to half of the total weapon length, and a Katana like blade. The full length can feature about 6 Shaku (182 cm), which is the length of the model we offer here (can be made shorter upon request).
The oldest historical examples date back to the Kamakura period (12th century), and during the Muromachi period (14th century) the Nagamaki was the most common. It remained famous in popular culture due to the warlord Uesugi Kenshin who is said to have had a special guard armed with Nagamaki.
The Nagamaki being an infantry weapon mostly used against cavalry, its use is very specific.It is not formally practiced in any active Koryu but sometimes demonstrated within the Bujinkan school (Ninjutsu). Informally, it is trained for research purpose in some old Koryu.
