African Blackwood Slim Nunchaku

This is a rare hardwood we have a limited supply.  These African Blackwood Slim Nunchaku are made of top grade  African Blackwood  This is the original model and is perfect for all martial arts.  Unlike the outlets which only sell imported cheap versions of this weapon, we made ours by hand.  They are not stained, and we don’t use poly fillers on cheap wood.    All are handmade, shaped, oiled, sanded and strung.  Like all of our nunchaku each of one of kind made one at a time.   All are 100% made, sold and shipped in the United States.

Traditional Nunchaku Design

Unlike mass produced martial arts weapons made overseas, we designed our African Blackwood Slim Nunchaku to be easy to hold, not get sticky and give you confidence as you practice your forms.  Originally the nunchaku was designed from farming tools in China.  Occupied Chinese were not allowed to have weapons and a whole range of new weapons sprung from the tools at hand.  Our nunchaku are not mass produced, each one is made one at a time.  We use exotic hardwoods and try to get every inch of wood used in our product.  Some of these woods are hard to find in usable sizes so we take great care to get the most out of each piece.  The design is to last and be durable.  We take out the least amounts of wood to keep them strong and use rope that will only fill the voids to make them easy to repair.  This model, African Blackwood Slim Nunchaku, uses a 550 para cord tie with three ropes in between the nunchaku. We have re string kits available as well as instruction as to how to re string our nunchaku when it becomes necessary.

    The African Black wood is very dense, and heavy! jet black wood grain with a cool rope color. These stand out in any group.
