American Handmade Nunchaku

Given the choice wouldn’t you rather buy American Handmade Nunchaku than a nunchaku with no soul? all of our martial arts weapons are made one at a time by martial artists. we don’t buy them over seas or from a big warehouse store. We think this makes them special and unique. This gives the weapon the character that the user possesses.

Handmade vs Robot made

USA Nunchaku is not a warehouse in China, or a large manufacturing factory. USA Nunchaku Co. is a small American company making handmade nunchaku from 100% American materials in our small workshop. We make handmade nunchaku in different shapes and sizes in small batches, each featuring a selection of various hardwoods. While they do cost a bit more than a $9 Chinese “chuck in a bag”, our nunchaku are Handmade and each one of a kind.

Stop in and check out the store, your perfect nunchaku is waiting for a spin. If you have any questions or need help picking the perfect nunchaku for your training, please do not hesitate to contact us directly and we will be more than happy to help out with your choice or any other information you may need.

U Swivel Chain Linked Nunchaku

U Swivel Chain Linked Nunchaku

We have been making nunchaku by hand for 20 years.  In that time the number one request has always been handmade u Swivel 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. We are proud to present our  Tapered Octagon U Swivel  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.   We think they are the best chain nunchaku made today and we invite you check them out.  We have a number of different models in play at the moment.  The cocobolo’s are all one of a kind and will be re listed as they made.  We are giving the option to change the amount of chain links used and have a number of different hardwoods and lengths available.

Usa Nunchaku Debut our 3 Rope Nunchaku tie

Usa Nunchaku Debut our 3 Rope Nunchaku tie

3 rope nunchaku tieWe are now going to start offering the nunchaku tied using a 3 rope nunchaku tie in the middle method.  It will be offered in a number of colors featuring a 480lb para-cord as always 100% American made.  While this method takes a bit longer to do and is more complex, we feel that it’s a great look, very strong and doesn’t require us to remove any more of the wood material which in the end makes for a stronger nunchaku.  It is also still a reliable end knot which can not unfasten like the other two method. 

This string method takes longer because of the complex pattern for the string.  We do not have an instructional set up yet for this way of roping the nunchaku.  As with all martial arts moves, there are a number of ways to arrive at your desired results.  This is also true with the many ways you can choose to tie your nunchaku later on.  This year we are also planning to feature a number of instructional  posts on the site that will feature different ways people tie their nunchaku.

Two Rope 650lb Tie

We will be continuing our two rope in the middle tie with a few changes. Now we will be using the flat 4 strand 650 para-cord.  As with all our rope we only use American made and only buy it from American retailers.  Currently this tie will only be available in a few colors but we hope to broaden the selection soon.

Cocobolo Dust

Handmade Nunchaku

Cocobolo Dust

Cocobolo NunchakuOh my, it is so hot outside in north America this summer.  Right now in the north east the humidity has taken over completely.  Day and night it is 100 % in charge.  It’s pea soup at 5:30am, and it just gets hotter and stickier as the sun crosses the  sky.  There is only like one guy that I know who isn’t bothered by this at all.  Not to worrycocobolo, the last 2016 batch of  nunchaku are on the way.  We spent the weekend doing the ruff cuts and hard routes and Cocobolo dust.  Soon the next batch will be at the sanding stations.

Cocobolo dust is one thing that is hard to deal with.  Most people don’t know that the saw dust is poisonous.   It has a strong smell when it’s cut and creates a red dust power that gets on everything. I can tell you is to horrible.  In the shop the saw dust can get crazy.  We cut and expel a lot of wood.  Add the 72% relative humidity and 92 degrees F, it makes the cocobolo dust cling to your skin and turn to a paste.  I have to take breaks and continuously wash off while cutting this wood.  Not much fun, but the only path to the beautiful and colorful wood becoming a set of nunchakucocobolo nunchaku.

This time around we will have cocobolo featured but we will also have some other great woods like zebra, bloodwood, red oak, and locust.  Small and slim models with some of the high end woods and our new highly searched for “nunchaku stringing packet“.  I’m planning three complete batches to be for sale between now and Christmas so there will be plenty to go around for everyone.  As always each is handmade, never stained and we sand, oil and string every pair.  It’s without question and best nunchaku value for the practicing martial artist and best of all, they are made in the USA.
