The Tetsubo or Kanabo is a Japanese war club used by the strongest samurai. It is often associated with the mythical oni. Our hand made octagon Tetsubo is made of laminated oak slabs embedded with steel rivets. This massive weapon can weigh over 10 lbs and are custom made to your specifications. This is the Kanabo shown on Spike TV Deadliest Warrior Viking vs Samurai . After seeing the slow motion video, we worked to improve the mounting of the steel rivets. After testing several methods (and losing a lot of rivets), our latest test showed rivet retention going from approximately 70% to 99%. This change has made this a truly functional weapon of awesome proportions.

When one sword is just not enough - Nihonzashi
Sherry & Mike Femal,
Sherry and Mike started Nihonzashi in 2006 so their students of Toyama Ryu would have a consistent supply of uniforms, swords and tatami mats. We have enjoyed growing the business to what it is today and are proud to be known worldwide for our custom products and services. Sherry and Mike created and custom make all of the gekken swords we ship around the world. Also, Mike is fulfiling his dream of expanding his custom weapons to include knives. We look forward to what the future brings and what new creations are on the horizon.
