Type of Weapon

Wood Selection

Type of product:

Laminated weapons are the ultimate training tools. They combine different tyes of wood to give you the benefits of each type of wood. It also provides a unique and beautiful variation of colors. You can build your own custom bokken with contrasting colors of wood, or choose the same wood. One of our favorite combinations is Ipe on the outsides and Lignum Vitae in the center. This provides you with the densest wood in the world in the center that actually makes the contact. The Ipe on the sides provides less weight so you can swing it faster. We also recommend using Dymondwood as a center. We use cross grain lamination to give the bokken more strength than a single piece of wood and it keeps the bokken/jo straight and true. Click here to see a sample of Ipe and Lignum Vitae.

*Please note that we make jo/bo staffs by hand and we do not use a CNC router or any special equipment. The diameter can vary slightly. Sometimes sanding can reduce the size slightly. Also, longer jo/bo staffs can slightly warp due to differences in climate. Due to differences in humidity in different areas, it is recommended that you choose lamination for jo/bo staffs to help prevent warping. If you choose a wood that we do not have in the diameter you requested, we will automatically laminate the staff to achieve the thickness you ordered. The staff will still look like a solid wood staff, but it will be upgraded to a laminated staff. If this causes any problems, please contact us ahead of time to talk about woods that are availble in the thickness that you want.


Please include any other instrucions you may have pertaining to your order. For example, if you need it by a certain date or if the item is to be used more for display than combat. Please include these details in the box below.
