Regular priceSale price
This is a handmade extra heavy Wooden Jo Staff. The Jo Staff is a traditional training tool used in Kobudo styles of Karate and Aikido Martial arts. These staffs are 1,1/4 inches in thickness making these staffs much heavier and sturdier then an average Jo Staff or Hiking Stick. Their lengths range from 48"-54". These staffs are laminated which improve strength, durability, straightness, and safety.
The staff is great for muscle building or weapons strength training due to its thickness and weight. They also function excellently as a wilderness walking stick due to this very reason.
The materials consist of Hickory sapwood. Hickory is the hardest available north American wood, and has an incredibly sturdy feel. The hickory prevents this bo from having any wobble upon performing techniques.
*For the 'lightweight option' these staffs have a slightly lighter density then standard hickory. These staffs are particularly good for hiking, due the increased ability to carry for long distances, while still maintaining the strength and durability of hickory. They may still be heavier than average hardwoods, but lighter then normal for hickory. Also excellent for speed training in karate. These staffs may still be comparable to most hardwoods, however for hickory, they are below average. I have reduced the price on these staffs by 10$.
The pictures are generic in nature and show a variety previous staffs built. Hickory can come in several different, sometimes even on the same staff. Each staff is unique.
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.
