Hand Cut Bo Staff, the long staff of feudal Japan

This all hand carved martial art Bo staff ranges in length from 60" to 74". The most widely recognized Bo is the "rokushaku" Bo. The name rokushaku means "six shaku", a shaku being .994 ft and so the traditional length is about 72". 
Two diameters are available. The usual is 1 1/8" which is the traditional thickness and nicely proportioned to the full length Bo however, the thinner diameters are available for shorter lengths. For a fast Bo staff however, with exceptional maneuverability, the 1" diameter is highly recommended, even in full length versions!

 

Tapered Bo are available by special order, please contact us!

Testimonial

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
