This series of staves are made with 2 layers of impact grade hickory laminated together to form a strong, straight and defect free staff. This is the best wood possible for martial arts use. The hickory is strong, yet it is flexible to not be brittle when struck against other equipment. We hand oil at least 2 coat of a boiled linseed/mineral spirits mixture.
Weight: little less than 1-1/2 lbs. (.068kg)

A 6 ft (1.8 m) bō is sometimes called a rokushakubō (六尺棒: ろくしゃくぼう). This name derives from the Japanese words roku (六: ろく), meaning "six"; shaku (尺: しゃく); and bō. Shaku is a Japanese measurement equivalent to 30.3 centimeters (0.994 ft). Thus, rokushakubō refers to a staff about 6-shaku (1.82 m; 5.96 feet) long. This thickness allows the user to make a tight fist around it in order to block and counter an attack. Source: Hanbōjutsu, the art of wielding the hanbō, is a focus in several martial arts including the Kukishin-ryū koryū classical school of martial arts, and Kukishinden-ryū, one of the nine schools of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. Part of the importance in using this length is that it is approximately that of a walking cane. Although techniques with a cane in this ryū-ha utilize pulling or hooking and possess one rounded end, that they invariably function the same as a hanbō in all other respects.The hanbō can be used as a means of striking, restraining or even throwing someone. It is useful to know because sticks are abundant and can be picked up if attacked. Masaaki Hatsumi says that one who wishes to be a swordsman should first master hanbō techniques, since it can be held and utilized in a similar fashion to a Japanese sword (but without the cutting edge). When utilized properly (parrying by deflecting the sword by striking the flat parts of the blade), it was more than capable of defeating a katana. Source:

Sometimes good sometimes Dents & Dings
The first time I got sticks from them they were perfect. But then I got others that had dings and dents. If you complain they will threaten to cancel your account! Now I like the strength of the sticks and the price is good. If you buy a bunch which I have you will get some very good ones and then you will get some ones that have dents and dings. And if you complain you will get no apologies and t

Ideal Balance
The 1.25" size is light enough to be fast, heavy enough to be effective. Quite possibly the ideal balance combining best of 1" and 1.5" staffs.

Great for fast staff practice
Allows for fast movement in staff practice. Also used for short support when I need a small cane (use rubber tips). I also wanted to try the "laminated" staff material.
