Okay, I used to sell rattan sticks to fellow practitioner’s, friends, etc. However, it was always hit or miss with good suppliers. Finally, I found a consistent supplier that can provide me with product in quantity at a price that makes it worthwhile to sell again. Better than that I am able to take the rattan craft to the next level with fire hardening and lacquering. The rattan sticks that I am selling are simply better than you will find from any competitor out on the market. That I guarantee! You will be happy!
One thing about rattan is that it is an excellent training stick due to the natural anti-vibrational properties and also that instead of shattering like a hardwood when they get worn out they fray which is an exceptional aspect for hard stick on stick or tire or bag training.
Here is our rattan workshop:
The following sticks are multi node sticks, fire hardened, lacquered and a few extra special steps. They are exceptional sticks simply for the best practitioner’s in the world. They are the same type of sticks that I personally use:
These are typically 1″ 1/4 at the gripping base but anywhere from 1′ to 1″ 1/4 at the top. These typically feel more like a Filipino bolo and the bottom feels more like a bolo based on a slight curve at the bottom. They are simply fantastic! We sell 2 sticks for $30 plus a roll of Renfrew black hockey tape. You will not be disappointed with these sticks! They are in a totally different class than anything else on the market!
We will also be selling a slightly cheaper stick that is also fire-hardened and lacquered. These sticks are some of the best sticks you will find out there. Take a look at these beauties:
I have seen similar quality sticks sold for 29 dollars. These sticks are better than any of my competitors. That is a fact!
These will are available in 28″ long and width can be ordered in 1″ and 1″ 1/8 or if you are simply a giant mountain man we have a few limited 26″ long and 1″ 1/4 sticks available as well.
28″ long and 1″ costs: $22 (pair)
28″ long and 1″ and 1/8 costs: $22 (pair)
Giant Mountain Man Sticks 26″ long and 1″ and 1/4 wide costs: $22 (pair) Note these really are for giant people trust me you need really big hands and they are fire-hardened and lacquered!
If you want non fire-hardened sticks with natural skin we have those as well. They are available in 28″ by 1″ or 28″ by 1″ and 1/8. These are still some of the best sticks you will ever find as our supplier only sells the best rattan. A pair of non fire-hardened sticks will run you $20. Following is a pick of some fantastic natural skin rattan sticks:
All rattan sticks eventually start to fray and when that happens the professional martial practitioner tapes them up. Personally I use renfrew hockey tape. This tape initially is sticky but after a couple of practices it eventually turns into a perfect stick tape. With every purchase of a pair of our sticks you also get 1 renfrew hockey tape. Just like this picture:
These sticks are simply great. I am sure you won’t be disappointed!!!
