Blacksmithing handheld Nunti

Following on from the Nunti Bo I made a few months ago, I was asked to make 2 handheld Nunti. I think they are also sometimes referred to as Sai.

These are used in the Japanese  martial art discipline from Okinawa.

I really enjoyed making these. I worked with Garry to work put the size and weight to give them a good balance. They have a lovely feel and weight and I am very pleased with how they have come out.

You can see the stages of manufacture below.

They are finished with simple beeswax polish from our own bees.
