This is a nice overall staff. It is very light. The width is not uniform down the entire length, but nor should it be. Very strong and flexible.
Did some drilling of parries to test durability. they seem to hold up well. One did come warped- just a little curved. They also seem to have a natural taper to them, which is fine by me but wasn't expected.
Just as expected nice diameter feels good in hands! Get you one they're great staffs!
I just received this piece today and must say I am impressed. The wood is heavy and strong. I personally craft walking sticks and other such items out of wood and can easily say the wood is very good. Definitely tapered towards one end, which I came to expect from the reviews, but both ends withstand strikes. I have read some of the reviews and as a martial artist I think such a fine piece of wood would be wasted on a walking stick or anything of the sort. The only issue I have is it will have to lose about six inches off the top where the wood split upon drying out, which happens frequently when making walking sticks, wizard/Druid staffs or magic wands, so it’s no big deal at all!
I ordered two of them. I know they say they're almost unbreakable and from what I've noticed they are tough and flexable depending on it's thickness. One is fairly thick compared to the other. But they're both pretty tough. What I'm having a hard time believing is they are natural wood and you have ton of variables with a natural wood product. We have to expect possible weak spots and expect it to possibly chip when it's smacked against other hard objects. I haven't had any issues but I also haven't tried to knock over a tree with it yet. It's tough, flexible and really straight for a natural tree. I recommend them very highly but they are wood and they aren't indestructible. I'm going to carve on mine. Im not an expert at carving but I will have something very cool when I get done and I will enjoy these alot.
All these complaints about this not a proper bo (a Japanese-style staff) are complete hogwash! This is a gun (a Chinese-style staff which is used in Shaolin Kung-Fu). The main difference being that a bo has either no taper, or has a double taper (thick in the center and thinner at the ends). Traditionally, the gun would have a single taper which is presented here (in the southern style of staff, or Nan Gun). I did not order this staff, myself, but rather received it as a birthday gift from my Sifu. It is a beautifully-simple and strong staff, and there is only one knot on mine at the very base, which should not affect performance at all. I was able to cut it down a few inches to match my height (5'10") with little to no effort, and the staff moves wonderfully while performing my taolu (the kung fu equivalent of a kata in karate). Overall, a great value.
Exactly how a waxwood staff should be not supposed to be a bo staff the thinner side is capable of being used with a spear head if you purchase one separately. Great quality durable and great for heavy practice
Great staff. Very light, despite it's 6ft length. Noticeable but not intimating to good people. Thugs tend to give pause & look for easier targets. Extremely reasonable price & very prompt delivery. Recommend highly.
Half inch at one end tapers down to 3/4 inch on the other end on a 6 foot staff is laughable. No quality control ? Some small bends in the wood to be expected, but the taper is huge, not usable as a Bo staff without MAJOR woodworking.
This is a rather nice piece of wood - straight grain, no knots, smooth. At a full six foot it is bit long for hiking in the woods so it will either get trimmed a bit or steamed and bent into a crook. All in all a splendid staff.
I read the description, and I understand that your average stick will be thicker at one end that the other, but the staff I received starts out fairly thick at one end, but quickly tapers down, and at the far end is just over 1/2 an inch thick. I bought this to add to a spear tip, but it is not suited for this at all. I gave it 2 stars because I can see that if it had been uniform in thickness, (Like the one in the photo/video I might add!!!?!?!) it would be perfect. I call this a classic bait and switch. I know not all of them will be identical, but you should not pass off sub-standard merchandise on the unlucky few to save a buck. You should have some type of quality control in place.
When I ordered it was buy one get one free. After waiting over six months because they were on backorder, I finally got only one staff. I had ordered before and got exactly what I wanted, however this time, not only didn't I get the free staff, I only received one and it was the correct size on one end but tapered down to half the diameter on the other. This shipment was definitely a major disappointment.
Once again trueswords delivered... Find the balancing point and this will serve you well... slides easy in the hands. yransfer of weight ys very easy and one the got here they were shipped promptly.. you cant go wrong with one of these... thanks again trueswords.
I don't mean to be a complainer but i thought it would be straighter and thicker i don't know what happened but it looks like something i could find and carve in the forest with any average wood. I may just be untrained in how they look since this is my first boa staff but i thought it was worth complaining about.
Anything can break wax wood is very strong If it is full of knots then you should have sent it back. and if you even a small child swings these sticks and hit a tree it will probably break. If some one knows how to use a staff then you would know you do not have to hit someone with a hard swing. you can control an attacker with one or two pokes and one lock and your attacker will pass out very quick. But you have to know what you are doing. A worn of advice don't hit tree's If you want to break bones take a class or buy a book just remember anything can break if not used properly. If you want a 6' stick to just swing and woop the crap out of somebody find a good piece of Maple strip off the bark shave the thicker end so both ends are close and let it dry in side do not leave in the sun it will split the stick it must dry slow.
well the staff is significantly thicker on one end.; rendering the staff useless for much combat use unless altered.
i got 3 knots in my not well blanced not straight it is not a good fighting staff it be a good Dark Sorcerer staff
Well balanced, smooth finish and uniform taper. I bought two 4-foot, two 6-foot. None of them have any knots in the wood.(That would be most likely cause of breaking, as reported by Jake and zerozombie.) Both lengths feel just right in the hand. If used as walking staff, it is useful to put cane tips or furniture leg tips on the bottom for increased traction and to protect the tip from splintering. I used furniture leg tips in off-white color, it blends-in very well.
5 min out of the package my grandson and i went to try these staffs. his first swing against a small tree with a half hearted swing, it broke 2 feet from the end. the last 4 feet is tough so i will buy again but be aware they can break easy.
I am using this shaft to make a replica of a native American spear. The wood is straight, strong and easy to craft. It is perfect for this application.
