The Basiko is a beautiful slim, light and very popular rattan stick hand chosen in the Philippines and fire hardened in the traditional manner with markings burnt onto the skins and then varnished. The skins are intact providing a smooth treated finish. They are imported directly to the UK by APEX Suppliers. This is a light rattan generally used by Eskrimadors for light training and / or solo practice. These are a natural product and so weights will vary.
