Hard Maple Straight Chain Nunchaku

We have been making nunchaku by hand for 20 years.  In that time the number one request has always been handmade chain linked nunchaku.  To do it right, we had to go back in time and skip the cheap imported barely metal versions of this classic martial arts weapon.  The wood is the same handmade American Hard Maple that we use in the roped version. We are proud to present our Hard Maple Straight Chain linked Nunchaku  Just like our woods, the metal and all the parts are 100% American made.  It’s tried and true design that gives smooth flow to the nunchaku.

Traditional Nunchaku Design

Unlike mass produced martial arts weapons made overseas, we designed our 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.

  • Unlike polypropylene, wood feels great allowing martial artists to practice as much as they like
  • Octagon-shaped grip with grooves for a more realistic experience
  • heavyweight and durable
  • Carbon steel U swivel for smooth motions

    These chucks are amazing! Everything they were said to be – excellent quality and craftmanship + the added bonus of being made in the USA. The U Swivel is hands down the best swivel available for nunchaku. I have three pairs of chucks that I bought in 1983 that have a U Swivel and I still use them vigorously today – I have no doubt that these chucks will last just as long. These may be a little more expensive than the cheap imports but they are worth every penny and will last a very very long time. You will not regret a purchase from U.S.A. Nunchaku Co. – and I loved the little “Shop Playlist During Creation” card = great personal touch on a great handmade product!
