Here are my dear friends, in front of you is probably the first naginata in two pieces, which can be purchased for training.
I spent a long time to realize these idea, mostly by trying to find a manufacturer of metal tube that would be ideal for this type of joint.
So here I must thank to sensei Erwin Steinhauser, Shibucho of KomeiJyuku Austria Honbu Dojo, which was first revised my Naginata, and made from her Naginata from two pieces. In this way, I was directed to create an elliptical diameter metal pipe, instead of seeking the manufacturer of such tubes
Only in this way is possible to make a connection, which is as sturdy as the Naginata from one piece.
I think that what you see in the picture's, the best solution for those who want Naginata in the bag for Bokken
in the picture below, you can find the special screwdriver that I made for this nginataFor securing naginata, it is necessary to twist the screw out, for one or two rounds, while the bolt head is aligned with the surface naginata shaft
little trick is that the screws that serve to fortify the compound stays in piece which is connected externally, so it will not happen to lose the screw
Here is few pictures of my wooden O- tanto's, with saya and ito maki
tanto with white Jabara ito have also wooden menuki, that was first time that i put menuki on any of my bokken's or tanto's, but it hepen to be very nice and natural for this kind of wooden buki
All this O-Tanto's have Hishigamis under itomaki wrap,
shape of blade and kissaki is very similar to original look tantos from that time.
When you order Tanto from me you could chose lenght of blade, lenght of tsuka, size and shape of tsuba , and as you se colour of ito maki.
If I don't have colour of ito maki which you like to have, you could buy it somewhere else and send it to me to wrap your tanto
Some Budoka's prefer bokken’s made of exotic wood, mostly for the beauty of exotic wood and other characteristics.
My personal experience says that exotic wood is not the happiest solution for those who expect a great bokken, especially for contact, in some of next posts I will explain why.
If you need a bokken / bokuto just for kata’s or slight contact, which will really look good, then certainly recommend the already known species of exotic wood.
On the photo below is one of my bokuto made from African Paduk, the structure of this wood looks like flowing lava, normally under the horizontal section in relation to a tree.
There are also pictures of some other bokuto and from my private collection which I made, I hope you enjoy the pictures
Peter AntunovicHornbeam bokuto in most comon style, like my all bokuto's, this one also have natural sory (curve) Bokuto in Tachi style(hornbeam), natural curve, bokuto on picture is without tsuba, but it could be with wooden or rubber tsuba in shape which you like
Bokuto in koryu style (hornbeam)
Dear Budo friends,
because some problems with my website, here I will continue to inform you about my work with wooden equipment for Budo practioners.
In this way you will have better information's about some my projects.
After all I never plan to run some budo shop, or budo internet shop, of course some things in life, man must pay.
My workshop is place where people could come to see and feel energy, knowledge and passion for working with wood, which are built into all my work's
To all those who can not come to my workshop will serve this blog, as a window into a world in which I live and create Budo buki.
