12 inch Cocobolo wide U-Swivel 2019-074

This one is a straight octagon Cocobolo Straight U-Swivel 2019-074.  This is a one of one.  The length is 12 inches of beautiful hard to find Central American cocobolo hardwood.  This wood is likely to disappear at some point in the future so get your now before it’s too late.  All our Cocobolo nunchaku are  1 of 1  The nunchaku in the photos is the exact nunchaku you receive due to the unique grain patterns of each cocobolo piece.

The U swivel

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. We use a welded 375 lb chain with 6 links standard.  You can change the link amount before checkout if you desire more or less links. Unlike the imports these connectors do not use a bearing system or a pinned cap to hold the chains together.  The result is the smoothest motion possible.  There is no comparison to the cheap outlet nunchaku.  The wood is the same handmade Central American Cocobolo that we use in our roped version.  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 Cocobolo Straight U-Swivel 2019-074 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.  We take out the least amounts of wood to keep them strong and use rope that will only fill the voids to make them easy to repair.
