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 into Japanese. Consequently, they will always be engraved in English.

    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

    • Tsubanashi Deluxe Bokken 101.5 cm - Red or White Oak

      Made in Japan (Kyushu)
      Chevroned Spine | Rounded butt | Long Kissaki | Tsubanashi
      Red Oak, White Oak available

      The "Superior Tsubanashi Bokken" is manufactured in a single piece of red or white oak from the southern islands of Kyushu (Japan). The design developed by the Seido team remains resolutely classic in its general form with the deletion of the line between the tsuka and the blade allowing a grip on a much larger portion of the bokken (but prohibiting the use made of a tsuba). This particular finish will be useful to Aikido practitioners who do not use Tsuba and are hindered by the line when the distance between the hands is important. This model is also available in Sunuke and Tsubaki.

      This model is standard and suitable for any type of practice, provided that the use of the tsuba is not necessary.

      • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak.
      • Available finish: Standard Finish or Seido Special Finish.
      • Manufacturing workshop: Aramaki

      Finish options:

      In 2021, with concerns for the workers, all workshops greatly reduced the number of urethane-varnished weapons and replaced the finish with 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 finishes 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 sandpaper), then we finish the weapon with high-quality beeswax. This finish makes the wood as smooth as it can be and guarantee excellent protection for several months.
      For maintenance, we recommend at least oiling 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).

      Incredible piece of art!!!

      I always buy bokkens from Seido, and the last one I ordered did not disappoint! Absolutely gorgeous balance and superior feel! Each bokken I have purchased from Seido has been a work of art, and this latest one, a Tsubanashi, is even more beautiful! I did not think it possible! But there it was before me. With Seido bokkens I feel I can take on the world!!

      Beautiful finish, good balance

      This is my first bokken with no Tsuba line. I really enjoy that and the Seido finish makes definitely a difference in comparison with the standard finish (which is also very good anyway).
      It is a beautiful bokken, that hopefully doesn't get too banged up during practice.

      Excellent Product

      This bokken is an outstanding addition to my suburi training. It's length, weight, balance, and diameter are perfect for dexterity drills. It was shipped and delivered very quickly. I rely on Seido for all my budo needs.
