Kombat Instrument Ltd. sticks are more durable than the sticks found in catalogs, magazines and many martial arts retailers. These sticks are cut from Mano Rattan which is the hardest of the rattans, the skin is left on, then fire treated and lacquered for strength and appearance.
Despite the fact that our sticks look good, they are for fighting and not merely display. These sticks will withstand considerable hard contact and perfect for full contact matches.
Please remember that rattan is a natural product. These are not machine processed sticks, there are natural imperfections which, quite honestly, add to their appeal.
Diameters are used as a guideline and are not exact. But we try real hard.
