    Camellia Oil - Tsubaki abura

    Made in Japan (Isu Islands)

    Ingredient: 100% Tsubaki Oil

    Size: M > 70 mL / L > 118 mL

    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.

    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 Iwama Takemusu Tanto - Red/White Oak

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)
      Flat Spine | Flat Butt | Iwama Ryu Kissaki
      Red Oak or White Oak available

      The Iwama Takemusu Tanto is available in red oak or white oak, varnished and unvarnished (camellia oil polish). This model is based on the shape of the Iwama Takemusu Bokken, but can be used by any school. Because of the blunt tip, it is a safer choice for intense practice.

      This model is not officially used in any school, it is the Tanto version of the Takemusu Bokken, copy of one of Saito Sensei's Bokken. It is an excellent choice for Iwama practitioners who opted for the Takemusu Bokken instead of the Iwama Bokken.

      • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak
      • Available finish: Urethane varnish or camellia oil polish
      • Manufacturing workshop: Horinouchi for all models

      Iwama Takemusu Bokken and Iwama Takemusu Shoto also available.

      Non varnished - Oil polish option:

      All our high-end weapons are available in urethane varnish or camellia oil polish finish. Note that unvarnished weapons are much more pleasant to the touch.
      Unvarnished weapons are more ecologically-friendly, but they require 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 out of stock or made to order, the shipping time can take up to 6 weeks in case of shortage. Please note that the oil finish process can darken the wood significantly.
