This is a handmade Wooden Hanbo Staff. The Hanbo Staff is a traditional Martial Arts training tool used in Kobudo style martial arts. Its diameter is a constant 1 inch throughout its length. One inch thickness is the traditional thickness for all shorter Martial Arts Weapons. If you are looking for a thicker version please check my other listing for extra wide hickory hanbo here. 36" is the traditional length for a hanbo. Making these staffs about the same size as traditional cane. This staff also comes in a longer length of 42 inches, which is a cross between the feel of a hanbo and a jo staff. 

The materials consist of Southern Appalachian hickory hardwood. Hickory is the hardest available North American Hardwood, and is excellent for all uses. These staffs may come in solid hardwood variety or laminated, depending on availability of wood, and the wood quality.

Hickory is cherished for its superior impact qualities and feel, and is the strongest  and safest woods to use for staffs.
