1 Superior Quality 60-inch  Appalachian Hickory Octagon Bo Staff.


These extreme smooth-sanded hickory Octagon Bo Staff's are made from very strong and flexible Appalachian hickory. They have a shock resistance far superior to most hard woods; it is also conditionally excellent and collected from well managed domestic forests and not taken from the fragile tropical or rainforest environments. There are other hard wood species that are taken from already depleted environments.  


The quality of our Appalachian hickory, Octagon Bo Staff's, is a light to dark colored wood with many color variations. Some are straw colored, some are brownish red, and there are some that have a mixed combination of the two colors.


Our Appalachian Hickory Octagon Bo Staff's are strong and very usable and not too heavy. We think that these staff's are a great choice for martial artists who are looking for speed and ease of use in paired practice or combat. The wood grain of these Appalachian Hickory Staff's gives them superior external smoothness, which are great for a practitioner or the martial art master needing to yield the best quality.

The Appalachian Hickory Octagon Bo Staff shock strength far exceeds most all native and exotic hardwood species including the commonly used red or white oak; which becomes brittle as it ages, our hickory staffs has exceptional strength and will maintain its strength and flexibility indefinitely. With normal practice, these weapons get better tougher over time they become tempered. Our staff's even after years of heavy use, will be less likely to snap splinter into dangerous pieces, unlike other harder and more brittle woods.
