I work as a locksmith in some pretty bad parts of the city. Having access to this if confronted and with no way to run is a big help. Absolutely love it’s size and the craftsmanship. An a added extra when I do lock repairs or other things in restaurants that still require a face covering. I use the mask it’s wrapped in; many thanks to budo brothers.
Looks good feels fantastic Love it I almost sleep with it
Gorgeous - Solid - Exactly what I hoped it would be. Thank you!
The Alloy Kobo is really nice. The weight is perfect!
At first glance this Kobo is exquisite the craftsmanship well thought out.. I am highly pleased. I am a Protection Agent,I have added this to my person. Thank you for a well designed Kobo... I applaud you.
Looks great, good workmanship and feels good in the hand. I would also be happy with a slightly thinner model.
The experience was just the way any consumer would like the transaction, fast delivery, superior product and it seems like they we in contact every step of the way until the delivery was made... Great quality, Great service Thank you C

The detail on the Kobo is amazing. I've purchased both the Alloy & the Bronze and suggest that everyone do the same! Amazing quality! The best part about the order was the customer service!! You will truly have no regrets!! They were amazing with doing an exchange for a different product. Professional, simple, and quick.
Coming back from duty to see this in front of my door was awesome! The weight is perfect where I’m comfortable to be carrying it around all day. The size is enough for conceal carry as well. Overall, it is a beautiful peace of work. I’ll be adding it to my box of tools of EDC. Mahalo Budo Brothers!!
Feels nice and it is a real force multiplier. When you see it you first think it is too nice to use it but after you use it you know it is much nicer to use it than just to watch it. Perfect weight and haptics.
These are awesome, well worth getting afew of them make great Christmas presents
Excellent quality and presentation.
It was very well crafted. The finished touches were a very pleasant surprise when I opened the box. I didn't want to unwrap it and wanted to just display it as is, but I had to do some training with it too. Hard choices of life lol. John
Your company is great delivery time was perfect only one thing I really don’t know how to use this tool wish I knew more
Light and beautiful, good size. I'love it.
Fits perfectly into my riding vest. It's got se heft to it yet still lightweight. Love the pattern on it.
Would recommend grabbing these, quality is really good, I’ve got a couple of them now, you won’t be disappointed
Well crafted item strong and light weight
Beautifully crafted and packaged. Great attention to detail.
Absolutely beautiful craftsmanship. Phenomenal piece of equipment. And Erik went WAY above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of and fully satisfied. These guys are amazing and their gear is top quality.
It has been a great tool to train and carry for self defense!
Not bad, well-made not heavy Functional
Bought this for a friend and he loved it.
Budo makes nice looking stuff that works. The, whatchamacallit, kubaton, is elegant to the eye. It's also a primal tool. I bought one for my lady and one for myself. An easily handled rigid ... wand, let's say, in the eyes or across the knuckles will buy time. Any way to stop the bad guy's flow and maybe take sente is a good thing. Me? 73 year old stroke survivor, not Chuck Norris! But, you know, "When strong, appear weak." My half pound bronze mala and this puppy ought to buy this weak looking guy some time.
An easy transaction, with fast shipping accompanied by a tracking number. Received my Alloy Kobo well packaged. The Kobo itself is solid, feels well balanced in hand, and looks aesthetically stunning. Looking forward to purchasing other Budo products. A well pleased customer.
It feels nice in my hands, craftsmanship is superb. Regards, CJ Houck
Need and tidy!
It showed up beautifully packaged. I am impressed with the feel of it. It's also much lighter than I imagined it would feel. Which was a great surprise. I'm looking forward to training with it. Thank you.
Bought on some time before and it's quite the find. Not the least bit disappointed. Thank you.
Your product is terrific!!! Very well made. This yawara stick is very special and made with pride. Quality product all the way.
Picked up this larger kubaton from and I’m loving the size and weight. Large enough to draw quickly and easily from the pocket and strike with either end. Light enough to carry but with enough heft to do real damage. Beautiful craftsmanship, really digging it.
In addition to martial arts, i do like collecting. So I am very happy with my three kubos. I love the weight of the brass for practising flow and the wood for practicing hammers, punches and slash strikes w a partner. The allow one is a great in between kubo though - similar weight to the wood, same chiseled geometry as the brass. Great job guys.
I often find myself practicing escrima drills with a makeshift kali stick from a chair leg and my kobo as well for close quarter defense when I’m indoors and keep my bokken and nunchaku when I’m outdoors with more space.
you should sponsor @pouncing_sensei for repping you all over nyc
Shout out to @budobrothers for this beautiful Japanese Kobo as an addition to my EDC Collection. I had to build a concept holster for this masterpiece.
Lovely present arrived today.
