    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

    • Deluxe Bokken 101.5 cm - Murasaki Kokutan or Shima Kokutan

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)
      Chevroned Spine | Rounded butt | Long Kissaki
      Murasaki kokutan (tetsuboku, purple ebony) or Shima kokutan (Asian ebony)

      The currently available Murasaki Kokutan is significantly lighter in weight and color than what is advertised on the description. Currently only the Aramaki Workshop still offers Murasaki Kokutan, and this situation might last a few months.

      This Bokken available in purple ebony (Japanese) or asian (East Asia) ebony has a very extensive finish: a hanmaru tsukagashi (rounded), a kenmine upper edge, and an elongated daikissaki tip. Only the best woods are selected and particular attention is paid to the location and shape of nodes.

      Ebony wood bokken are very heavy and will suit practitioners who are rather well built. While the Japanese Murasaki Kokutan, with its 600 g, has a reasonable weight for any use, the Asian ebony model Asia is very heavy (~720g) and is more particularly intended for Suburi. These bokken will also make excellent gifts following the successful passing of an exam.

      Due to the quotas established by the Japanese government, these woods are available in limited quantities. Therefore, in case of shortage, a manufacturing delay of 2 months must be allowed for manufacturing.

      • Choice of wood species: Murasaki Kokutan (tetsuboku) or Shima Kokutan (asian ebony).
      • Finish: Non varnished (camelia oil polish).
      • Manufacturing workshop: Nidome or Aramaki

      All our high-end bokken are offered non varnished (camellia oil polish finish). Note that unvarnished weapons are much more pleasant to the touch as well as usage.
      Unvarnished weapons are more ecologically-friendly, but they requires regular (monthly)maintenance with oil(camellia or wood maintenance oil) and they can only be made from the finest, Japanese quality woods. Given the need for maintenance of these weapons, our stocks are limited. Also, since the craftsmen must select the best wood possible to manufacture these weapons, the processing time is longer than for varnished weapons. If engraved, out of stock, or made to order, the shipping time can take up to 6 weeks in case of shortage.
