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 constant diameter of 1,1/4" throughout its length.
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.
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.
*This particular purpleheart staff has a slight bend in it. It is approximately 1/4 inch over the entire length of the staff. The grain is very straight, and the warp is the only defect. Purpleheart is notoriously difficult to straighten with any method. I have reduced the price 10$ on this staff. It is wonderful for any other use.
*If you have any questions or would like to request a custom order please send all correspondence to firstname.lastname@example.org
