Finish Oil for wooden bokken, jo and other staffs. Handling results in wear to the finish and changes in atmospheric moisture causes drying of wood. Two options of protective finish oil are available.
Finish oil type M has a satin finish with good grip/slip properties for martial art products (bokken & jo etc). Finish Oil type H is a gloss finish and has better outdoor weather resistance (hiking sticks). Maintain hiking sticks especially in the lower area since mechanical abrasion will wear off the finish and allow moisture/drying damage.
- Select Finish Oil type M for martial art bokken & jo
- Select Finish Oil type H for hiking sticks
Easy application: Apply finish oil with paper towel. Let set overnight, lightly sand surface with extra fine abrasive pad included. Repeat process if needed.
Hi Brad I received the bokken and OH MY GOD, it is beautiful I almost don't want to use it, it looks so good. The jo and tanto are awesome too. One question on the bamboo tsuba, when I try to fit it, it got to 3/4 of the length of where it's supposed to be at the beginning of the tsuka. I didn't want to jam it in there forcefully, so is there a proper technique to install the tsuba? I'm assuming that I put an o-ring on each side of the tsuba. Makers response-Thanks so much! Tsuba are custom fit to individual bokken. They are intended to be a little snug at first however, they will seat into the transition ramp after a bit of use.
Hello, I'm mailing you to let you know i received the 42" aikiken i ordered near the beginning of the month. it is of the best quality i've ever seen. awesome, awesome sword, thank you! the grain on the chisel top is wild, changing color from light to dark with movement and the patterns within the wood make me feel like i'm handling a much more expensive piece of art. i hope to take care of it well enough to hand it down to my children! i can't wait to order another one of your wooden weapons. hopefully soon! - Andrew
