    This quality grade L7 bo staff, often used in the Okinawan martial arts is made to traditional proportions of 1 1/8" diameter and 71" in length. Often known as the "Rokushaku Bo," which refers to the traditional length of 6 shaku. The Kingfisher version is made of tough Appalachian hickory, a wood more resilient than oak, including the evergreen white oak, shiro kashi. The qualities of hickory become evident over time, especially when other wood species start to get brittle.
