Hickory is the hardest available North American wood. Hickory prevents this bo from having almost any wobble or flex, and has a great sturdy feel. Please note that hickory can come in the lighter sapwood color, the darker heartwood color, or a combination of both, giving each staff a unique natural beauty. These variations are purely aesthetic and do not at all affect the performance or the feel of the wood.
It is finished with several coats of Linseed and Beeswax oil, which gives it a permanent shine and protective layer while allowing the users hands to slip effortlessly up and down the staff, which is required for proper technique.
