Hickory Bo Staff 1,1/4" 60-72"

Bo Staffs are a traditional Martial arts training tools used in Kobudo style systems. These untapered staffs have a constant 1,1/4" in diameter throughout its length and have a heavy weight similar to European Quarterstaffs, making these very similar to traditional European Quarterstaffs. For thinner faster size staffs, please check my other listings.

These staffs range from a full 6 foot or 72" length to 60"

Southern Shagbark Hickory is one the hardest available North American Hardwood, cherished for its impact qualities. They can be used for hiking or martial arts use.

For more speed and maneuverability for martial arts training please see our Tapered 1.25 Hickory Staff Listing.  

These staffs may be either solid hardwood or laminated hardwood depending on wood availability and quality. 

For most of these listings I have added a weight range.

Staffs in the 2lbs 5oz or less are best for non-contact or solo or hiking uses. Heavier staffs are better for contact purposes and muscle building. 

*Staffs labeled discounted have some sort of minor flaws and are not recommended for contact. 

Hickory comes in two colors. Light sapwood, and light brown to darker brown heartwood. Some staffs have different colors of hickory laminated together. This is called Calico Hickory, and you commonly see it in hard wood hickory floors for extra beauty. As each staff is completely unique, the colors and patterns in the wood is different for each staff. The difference in color is purely aesthetic in nature.

Each staff is finished by applying several coats of Linseed and Beeswax oil and sanded to a fine finish, which gives it a permanent shine and amazing feel which allows the hands to slip effortlessly up and down the staff.
