Our American Handcrafted Nunchaku feel and work the way they were supposed to because we made them to be comfortable and strong.  Each of our pieces is one of a kind because they are made by hand.  At American Nunchaku we think this makes each one special.  Human beings alone have the ability to place special value in objects. Its called personification or anthropomorphism.  An exsample of this is a rabbit’s foot or a favorite shirt, or possibly a lucky cup. These are all objects that take on personality’s of their own to the owner. Martial artist make connections with their weapons in the same way and we provide a weapon worthy of that notion. We provide that type of product by making American handcrafted nunchaku completely fashioned in the United States.  Every nunchakus is one of a kind. All hand cut from natural hardwoods, never stained, all hand sanded oiled and strung. Have a look at our different batches, and select your one of a kind Chinese Octagon Nunchaku.

Every martial artist starts out and after some training, begin to acquire the weapons they study.  This happens in schools of every martial art style. When this time happened for me for the nunchaku, I was less than pleased with the standard issue chuck in bag, UN strung nunchucks from china.  It cost about $9 plus shipping but was in reality  worthless because they were too uncomfortable to learn with. 

Black Poisonwood Nunchaku

The American Handcrafted Nunchaku or nunchucks (Japaneseヌンチャク Hepburnnunchaku, often “nunchuks“, “chainsticks“, “chuka sticks” or “karate sticks” in English) is a traditional Okinawan martial arts weapon consisting of two sticks connected at one end by a short chain or rope. The two sections of the weapon are commonly made out of wood, while the link is a cord or a metal chain. The nunchaku is most widely used in martial arts such as Okinawan kobudō and karate, and is used as a training weapon, since it allows the development of quicker hand movements and improves posture. Modern-day nunchaku can be made from metal, wood, plastic or fibreglass. Toy and replica versions made of polystyrene foam or plastic are also available. Possession of this weapon is illegal in some countries, except for use in professional martial art schools.
