wooden jutte

trying to make the best Jutte for training, through all these years, I made several versions of the wooden Jutte.
All these versions are tested in the Bujinkan Seishin Dojo Croatia, somehow it seems to me that this is the best version, since it is closest to the true metal Jitte, in appearance and function.

This version, similar to the metal can break the lower quality bokken, my knowledge collected over the years also been used in developing the latest version.

As you can see in the picture above, special steel bolt provides strength to Kagi (hook) while blocking the more powerful attack's

Here is my last version of samurai kusarigama

Naginata in bokken bag

Here are my dear friends, in front of you is probably the first naginata in two pieces, which can be purchased for training.

I spent a long time to realize these idea, mostly by trying to find a manufacturer of metal tube that would be ideal for this type of joint. 
So here I must thank to sensei Erwin Steinhauser, Shibucho of KomeiJyuku Austria Honbu Dojo, which was first revised my Naginata, and made from her Naginata from two pieces. In this way, I was directed to create an elliptical diameter metal pipe, instead of seeking the manufacturer of such tubes
Only in this way is possible to make a connection, which is as sturdy as the Naginata from one piece.
I think that what you see in the picture's, the best solution for those who want Naginata in the bag for Bokken

in the picture below, you can find the special screwdriver that I made for this nginata
For securing naginata, it is necessary to twist the screw out, for one or two rounds, while the bolt head is aligned with the surface naginata shaft

little trick is that the screws that serve to fortify the compound stays in  piece which is connected externally, so it will not happen to lose the screw

so for those who might be interested, here is few styles of Naginata blades who could be made by this method, length is your choice, this is specially good for longer Naginata's (253 cm, 263 cm)

wooden Tanto

Here is few pictures of my wooden O- tanto's, with saya  and ito maki

tanto with white Jabara ito have also wooden menuki, that was first time that i put menuki on any of my bokken's or tanto's, but it hepen to be very nice and natural for this kind of wooden buki


All this O-Tanto's have Hishigamis under itomaki wrap, 
shape of blade and kissaki is very similar to original look tantos from that time.

When you order Tanto from me you could chose lenght of blade, lenght of tsuka, size and shape of tsuba , and as you se colour of ito maki.
If I don't have colour of ito maki which you like to have, you could buy it somewhere else and send it to me to wrap your tanto

Some  Budoka's prefer bokken’s made ​​of exotic wood, mostly for the beauty of exotic wood and other characteristics.
My personal experience says that exotic wood is not the happiest solution for those who expect a great bokken, especially for contact, in some of next posts I will explain why.
If you need a bokken / bokuto just for kata’s or slight contact, which will really look good,  then certainly recommend the already known species of exotic wood.

On the photo below is one of my bokuto made ​​from African Paduk, the structure of this wood looks like  flowing lava, normally under the horizontal section in relation to a tree.

There are also pictures of some other bokuto and from my private collection which I made​​, I hope you enjoy the pictures

Hornbeam bokuto in most comon style, like my all bokuto's, this one also have natural sory (curve)

Bokuto in Tachi style(hornbeam), natural curve, bokuto on picture  is without tsuba, but it could be with  wooden or rubber tsuba in shape which you like

Bokuto in koryu style (hornbeam)

Wooden Budo Buki

Dear Budo friends,

because some problems with my website, here I will continue to inform you about my work with wooden equipment for Budo practioners.

In this way you will have better information's about some my projects.
After all I never plan to run some budo shop, or budo internet shop, of course some things in life,  man must pay.
My workshop is place where people could come to see and feel energy, knowledge and passion for working with wood, which are built into all my work's
To all those who can not come to my workshop will serve this blog, as a window into a world in which I live and create Budo buki.
Yours sincerely, 
Petar  Antunović
