These are rare deluxe handmade Hickory Wooden Bo Staffs made from curly hickory.Staffs are used in many traditional martial arts. These particular staffs are 1" in diameter throughout its entire length. Each of these staffs in untapered, and sizes range from full size of 72" to smaller sizes, including jo and hanbo sizes.
The materials consist of some of the most beautiful striped hickory laminated with a strip of dense ipe down the middle. The laminations increase the strength of the wood, and the ipe adds density to the center of the staff, making these slightly heavier. Hickory is the most dense available North American naturalizes Hardwood, and is excellent for all uses. The specimens of hickory used in these staffs is extremely rare. The pattern for the striping is holographic, meaning when you spin the staff Infront of you, you can see the colors switch as the light reflects off of the staff. The striped grain happens in trees that are under extreme pressure due to its weight or shape, and this causes the grain to fold on itself. These patterns are extremely rare and coveted and in these particular staffs, the pattern is unlike anything I have ever seen before.
The wood used for these staffs is of medium grade, meaning they are perfect for uses which call for more speed, such as solo use, demonstrations and tournaments.
Various lengths are available. Please check the variations to see which are in stock. These are one of a kind staffs.
Also because of this effect, I do not recommend these staffs for contact, due to the non straight nature of the grain, and the chance that it could chip or crack more easily then straight grain. However, these will be excellent for tournament use, solo use or hiking, or ren Faires. These are some of the rarest specimens imaginable for hickory.
Because of the wavy nature of the grain, there is a texture that you can feel in your hands as you slide up and down the staff, as your hand feels the varying grain shifts in the wood.
1" Staffs are best for speed and tournament use, or hiking, and are not intended in general for contact use. For contact purposes, please see our selection of 1,1/8 thickness or 1,1/4 which can be sure to hold up to the heaviest uses.
These particular staffs are all made from solid wood.
It is finished with several coats of Linseed and Beeswax oil and sanded to a fine finish, which gives it a permanent shine and and amazing feel in the which allows the hands to slip effortlessly up and down the staff.
