Japanese Ash Wood Bo Staff Description
These are the new choice for many Japanese martial arts. These Japanese Ash Wood Bo Staff are a lovely weapon, so versatile and very good looking. Made from Ash wood, Ash is possibily goign to take over form Oak as Oak is getting harder and harder to source and therfore more expensive. They are same thickness throughout the length of the staff. They are a tough weapon and will take some impact for partner work and drills. However, be mindful that it is wood and isn't indestructible. Being a natural material, Wood can break so a real thumping could end up with a broken stick. Look after your staff and it will last you for years.
This Japanese Ash Wood Bo Staff is one of the nicest available on the market, it is slightly thicker than most Bo Staffs out there being around 1 1/4 inch or 32mm in diameter. This gives it a super traditional feel and the extra thickness helps with gripping your bo staff. Made in the standard Bo Staff length of 6ft / 72 inches / 180cm. You can also buy the Bo Staff Case to store and carry it in.
Styles like Ninjutsu, Karate and even Kung Fu especially the Southern styles will love training with this Bo Staff. The weight gives you a great workout, especially when training spinning drills. The Ash Wood bo staff is one of the most traditional and simplistic of Japanese weapons.
Advice from the shop on Japanese Ash Wood Bo Staff
"If you really want to have the best possible staff, take some sandpaper to the varnish and give it a few coats of linseed oil. It’ll make a massive difference to the feel of the staff."
Doug Swift - Owner of Enso Martial Arts Shop

5 stars based on 2 reviews
A lot meatier than the standard 25mm diameter Bo but at the same time quite light.
Lovely grain and is definitely 100% wood (have purchased red oak staffs, not from Enso I hasten to add, that have broken recently that turned out to be composite wood)
Haven't tested it's strength in contact though
Not quite as heavey as I thought it might be but feels rock solid and beautiful grain and patterns. Much nicer than the standard red or white oak IMO.
