Pomegranate Shoto

The Pomegranate.  Punica granatum.  The Grained Apple.  In biblical times, the pomegranate was a symbol of fruitfulness, blessing, and prosperity.  They were used for their fruit and seeds, their sweet juice and wines, and for ornamental decoration.  But what is rarely written about is pomegranate wood.

The trunk of the pomegranate is a bit knotted and twisted, and it easily cracks.  It is too thin to be used for lumber.  But if you ever get a usable length of this wood, you'll find it to be lightweight, durable, and surprisingly strong. 

We treat our pomegranate pieces like we treat our KIL Guava: multiple grades of sanding, oil massage, and waxing.  This brings out an amazing looking wood weapon, twisted and marbled with blond and deep brown patterns.  This piece had a natural curve, and despite its organic cracks, it made for a unique training shoto.   


Pomegranate Shoto is: 28" Long - (~1-1/2") Diameter - 1lb6oz Weight
