    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

    • Tendo Ryu Tanto - Red/White Oak

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)

      Flat Spine | Rounded Butt | Beveled Kissaki

      Red or White Oak

      This Tendo Ryu Tanto is made from a single piece of oak (red or white) from the southern islands of Kyushu (Japan). This Tanto is for practitioners of the "Tendo Ryu Naginata" school.
      Almost as long as a Shoto, it can barely be considered as a Tanto, even considering the historical long Tanto (featuring 30 cm+ blades), nonetheless, this is how it is officially called within the Tendo Ryu school. Not really suited for any kind of practice outside of the Tendo Ryu, it might make an interesting Shoto for some Koryu research as it is thin and very light, making it very easy to carry and use.

      We also offer the Tendo Ryu Bokken, and Tendo Ryu Naginata.

      • Choice of wood species: red oak or 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 in urethane varnish or 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 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 for 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.

      Tendo Ryu Naginata:

      The Tendo Ryu Naginata school is the oldest Naginata school still active. Founded in 1582 by Saito Hangan Denkibo Katsuhide, it was originally specialized in Kenjutsu, including Naginata techniques but has shifted toward Naginata the past decades (especially with the impulsion of the 16th Soke, the incredible Mitamura Takeko Sensei). One of the most interesting part of Tendo Ryu Naginata is the set of techniques with a broken Naginata, using only the shaft. Tendo Ryu does not rely on the Iemoto system and the current Soke, the 17th, is Kimura Yasuko Sensei.
