About Us

Custom handcrafted weapons for the serious martial artist.


Custom Kobudo is owned by David Rive from Stouffville, Ontario.  David is a retired software executive and also a retired Canadian Army Reserve officer.  For the last 12 years he has trained with Northern Karate Schools.  David particularly enjoys kobudo, and also helping teach junior students in the dojo.    David has always enjoyed woodworking and is a graduate of the cabinetmaking program at Humber College in Toronto.   NOTE:  Our prices are in Canadian dollars.  We do not charge HST.

What We Do ...

blah blah

 Serious martial artists prefer to use quality gear that is sized for them.   These weapons are made to your personal requirements, and hand crafted from the finest grades of hardwood available, in the traditional Okinawan style. Delivery is within 30 days – because these are personalized weapons, we do not maintain inventory.  Weapons can be engraved with your initials at no charge.   

Our Philosophy


We guarantee your complete satisfaction. If our weapon fails to meet your expectations, please return it prior to heavy use, for replacement, revision, or refund of your purchase price.  WEAR AND TEAR: Normal denting may occur in the wood surface during training - this is not covered. If the grip of a tonfa ever becomes loosened, we will repair at no charge.
