What is Camellia?

Camellia is also know as 'Tsubaki' in Japanese. Camellia is probably mainly known for producing beautiful flowers during winter to early spring, but Kendo practitioners recognize the Camellia as a source of great wood for Bokken.
The wood from the Camellia is know for it's luxurious color and it's fine grains which gives it a very smooth feel. Camellia Bokken can also be characterized by it being very hard while also being resilient, which makes it strong against impact and damage. The hardness of Camellia wood is comparable to that of Isu and Sunuke, making it very preferable for making Bokken.
