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 weighs over 10 lbs.
These tetsubo are custom made to your specifications.
This is the Kanabo shown on Spike TV Deadliest Warriors.
After seeing the slow motion video, we have worked to
improve the mounting of the steel rivets. After
testing several methods (and losing allot of rivets),
our latest test showed rivet retention going from 0% to
100%. This change has made this a truly functional
weapon of awesome proportions.
