This listing is for a Purpleheart Wooden Bo Staff. This is an upgrade to a common bamboo or rattan staff. The Bo Staff is a traditional Okinawan wooden self defense weapon used in Kobudo style martial arts. These particular staffs are 72inches in length. These staffs have a constant diameter of 1" throughout its length.
The materials consist of laminated purpleheart wood which is one of the most beautiful exotic woods. Its hardness is comparable to hickory and has a beautiful natural dark purple color. This staff is made from laminated construction which drastically increases the strength and safety of the wood by having the grain structures reinforce one another while also improving straightness and durability.
*In addition, these particular staffs are made from curly or flamed purpleheart, which has a holographic curly pattern in the wood which is shown in the pictures, making these staffs particularly beautiful and rare. These are shown in the picures. The pictures may not match the exact staff you receive, and are generic in nature for that particular curly wood. Some sections of each staff will have more or less of the pattern shown. And each staff will be unique.
1" Staffs are best used for solo use, speed training, and tournaments. If you have need of a contact staff please purchase one of the wider varieties
It is finished with several coats of Linseed and Beeswax oil, which causes the purpleheart to have a rich dark purple color. The oil gives it a permanent shine while allowing the users hands to slip effortlessly up and down the staff, which is required for proper technique.
