Weapon Engraving Services

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.

These modules are identical and you can add them in the order you wish. Of course, we cannot engrave twice in the same place, so please pay attention to the chosen positions.
For more than 3 engravings, please contact us prior to placing your order.
Limitations We engrave in Japanese and English only (no Chinese, Korean, etc.) For any special request (logo/design), contact us prior to your order. (Undiscussed demands will be ignored).

    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.

    Rigid Leather Tsuba for Bokken

    Material: cow leather
    Tsubadome (rubber ring) optional (white or brown).
    Size: ~9 cm (~7 mm thick)

    Round tsuba made of thick leather for classic Bokken. Leather is a natural, "living" material, slight differences in the shape of the tsuba and its color are possible. The emphasis is not placed on the appearance but it is an excellent model to effectively protect your hands! 

    This is the model we recommend to practitioners looking for a big leather Tsuba to fit a standard/deluxe Bokken or a thick koryu bokken. This round tsuba is the largest of our catalog and the center hole is cut either for Standard/Deluxe Bokken or for the Onoha Itto Ryu Bokken. It can be recut on the inside to be adapted to the Keishi Ryu Bokken, the Iwama Ryu and Takemusu Bokken as well as the Hokushin Itto Ryu or the Jigen Ryu Bokken.

    This Tsuba cannot be fitted on thin Koryu Bokken (Yagyu, Yagyu Shinkage, Niten Ichi Ryu, etc.).

    Please note that the Tsuba is shipped in its original shape. If you would like the Tsuba to be fitted with a particular weapon in your order, please specify it via the comment box of the shopping cart page. 

    Product Information & Size Chart

    • Ono-Ha Itto Ryu Daisho Set - Bokken & Shoto

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)
      Rounded Spine | Flat Butt | Short Kissaki
      Available in Red or White Oak

      Both Bokken & Shoto are made from a single piece of oak (red or white) and are manufactured in the southern islands of Kyushu (Japan). They are slightly shorter than the standard versions, and also thicker and heavier (especially the Shoto). Those models are meant for Ono-Ha Itto Ryu Kenjutsu practitioners. Therefore, they are not suited for general practice but are particularly interesting for hard contact practice.

      For the Bokken, we recommend the use of a round leather Tsuba (self-assembly).

      This model is not to be confused with the Hokushin Itto Ryu Bokken, used in another lineage of the Itto Ryu.

      Weapons manufactured in the Aramaki workshop are fully handmade; neither machine nor guide is used for the curve. Those models are therefore significantly more expensive.

      • Wood species: red oak, white oak
      • Available finish: Standard Finish or Seido Special Finish
      • Manufacturing workshop: Aramaki

      We also sell the Ono-Ha Itto Ryu Bokken and the Ono-Ha Itto Ryu Shoto separately.

      This set is offered with a 1,000 YEN discount in comparison with separate purchases.

      Finish options:

      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 Ono-Ha Itto Ryu School:

      The original Itto Ryu, founded by Ito Ittosai Kagehisa in the late 16th century, has disappeared nowadays but its techniques and legacy are still alive in many styles such as the Ono-Ha Itto Ryu, Mizoguchi Ha Itto Ryu, Hokushin Itto Ryu and many more. The Ono-Ha Itto Ryu is the oldest of those schools and was founded by Ono Jiroemon Tadaaki, Ittosai’s direct successor. More duel oriented, Ono was known to be a remarkable sword fighter but also a very difficult person. Although he shared the role of Shogun combat instructor with Yagyu Munenori (Yagyu Shinkage Ryu), his bad character played against him in favor of Yagyu. Ono-Ha Itto Ryu focuses on unarmored fighting and remains famous for its training with "Onigote", an enormous protective glove that can stand powerful strikes of a Bokken. Although the transmission quickly left the Ono family, the school has an uninterrupted lineage of guards of the tradition which guarantees the historical heritage and the efficiency of the taught techniques.
      It is interesting to note that Ono-Ha Itto Ryu is fully integrated into Takeda Sokaku's Daito Ryu school. Since Takeda was the main teacher of Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido, it is often said that Ono-Ha had a significant influence on Aikido. However, it has neither been officially confirmed nor denied that Ueshiba did learn Ono-Ha Itto Ryu from Takeda Sokaku. Besides, Ueshiba never taught Ono-Ha Itto Ryu and studied various other Kenjutsu styles, which makes the true influence of the Ono-Ha Itto Ryu on Aikido difficult to evaluate.
