What wood...

... are these nunchaku constructed from?

Also: what is the diameter at the "handle end" (the end AWAY from the cord)?

Thank you very much

Hi KenpoKen. The wood you get will be red oak unless the manufacturer decides to change wood shipments in the future. The diameter of the bottom handle is 1".

Are these tapered?

Do the 14" traditional octagon nunchaku taper along the length?

Hi Kirby. You'll see some slight tapering, thinner toward the rope. This tapering is very mild though so if you are looking for noticeable taper this may not be the model for you.

Perfect

A great nunchaku very nice for tricks. The cord vs. chain is a lot smoother but the chain version is a better work out. I'd defiantly recommend this one great price and performance.

Adjusting the Nunchaku

So I got a pair of these for Christmas, and they seem well made and sturdy. My problem is that I need to adjust them so there is a shorter length of rope between the two sides. I assume that first you use a knife or screwdriver to pry out the sealing putty, then push the knot out, untie it, retie at the correct length, then reseal with maybe silicone caulk. Am I assuming correctly, or will this trash my nunchaku? Thanks in advance!

It's a little tricky, but possible. Be careful not to crack the wood as you work with the chord.

After reading other reviews, I sanded the hollow where the cord goes in to prevent fraying. I was very pleased with them until I started practicing trapping techniques on a wooden target dummy. The hollow where the cord goes in cracked very quickly as the wood is thin there.

Perfect Gift!

I recently bought these for my boyfriend for Christmas. I have to say I know nothing about nunchucks, so I went by pictures of what he liked before buying them. The look on his face was priceless when he opened these and I have never seen him so happy before. Apparently, they are perfect and reminded him of when he was younger and learned from his father how to use them. Thank you, Karate Depot, for an amazing product that brought a smile to the face of someone I care so much about!

Great Pair!

Of nunchaku I mean. They are exactly what I expected and for me to say that is good. I usually have such high expectations that I am let down, not in this case. They obviously took the complaints about the sharp edges under advisement and started filing them down before they send them. I received mine rounded off and smooth where the cord comes out. The cord is a little long for my likes but that is an easily fixed problem. I chose them for the cord and the octagonal shape, great qualities.

14 Inch Octagonal Nunchaku

These Nunchucks are great quality, I cleaned up the top of the chucks where the string comes out with a round file and some sandpaper to prevent fraying of the rope and it looks and works fantastic.

The wood is oak with a great looking stain on them and I couldn't be happier, I even went to a military surplus store and bought some 550 paracord to insure that the rope would not break, it is rather easy to replace in my opinion and according to instructions on multiple sites you simply secure the ropes with a double knot after the threading process - I have not had any problems with these nunchucks, and I highly recommend training with this pair.

Great customer service

I originally received a damaged nunchaku, but Karate Depot was very prompt and sent a new pair without any hassle. This is a example of customer service at its best.

Great Product

As a 40 year veteran instructor - I know nun chucks. The nun chucks I urchased from Katate Depot are made of beautiful oak with a very nice stain, and offer excellant quality at a low price. Nun chucks come in all sizes. The wood nun chucks I purchased a a bit heavey - designed to do the most damage. Those who plan to use Stand Your Ground to defend themself with a gun - better think twice. If you ahve police traning - use a gun. But the rest of us need to learn about pepper spray, stun guns, and nun chucks. Karate depot will keep you out of jail. That is what karate is all about - self defense without going to jail.

The wood is rough.

On one of the chucks the wood is very rough on the inside where the cord is housed, and also has a sharp edge along the top. I have only used it for 1 hour and the cord is already starting to fall apart.

It sounds like this pair of nunchaku didn't quite live up to expectations. Reach out to us at csupport@karatedepot.com, I believe we'll be able to arrange a replacement pair for you.
