What is Camellia?

Camellia is also know as 'Tsubaki' in Japanese. Camellia is probably mainly known for producing beautiful flowers during winter to early spring, but Kendo practitioners recognize the Camellia as a source of great wood for Bokken.
The wood from the Camellia is know for it's luxurious color and it's fine grains which gives it a very smooth texture. Camellia Bokken can also be characterized by it being very hard while also being resilient, which makes it strong against impact and damage. The hardness of Camellia wood is comparable to that of Isu and Sunuke, making it very preferable for making Bokken.

5 of 5 Excellent! May 19, 2019

Very good hand feeling. If they can avoid using DHL for post would be much better, as they charge extra admin fee £11 for imported goods!

5 of 5 Good bokken. August 17, 2014
Reviewer: Hoang Nghiem from Melbourne, Victoria Australia  
This is indeed a beautiful wooden kodaichi. However, it's a bit light and I would prefer to use heavier kodaichi (white oak for example) to practice kenjutsu.

Because this kodaichi is really beautiful, I have not tried to use that in full contact kenjutsu yet; however, it looks quite durable and I guess there would not be any problem.
