Custom nunchaku, octagonal and tapered along the length. Made extra long at 16″ and triple strung with black para-cord.
Wenge (pronounced “wen-gey”) is a notoriously difficult wood to work, easily splintering and cracking, however if worked carefully it reveals a beautiful grain pattern with alternating bands of light and dark wood.
These nunchaku were cut with an octagonal profile, then hand planed to the finish taper before sanding down to a fine finish.
The wood is very dense and resinous so an oil finish will not work. These nunchaku were finished with a single coat of wax which supplements the natural oils present in the wood.
