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 diameter of 1" at the center of the staff and taper to slightly less then 3/4 of an inch at the tips.
The materials consist of 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.
1" tapered 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.
