    What do you want them made of?

    If you have access to woodworking tools you can make them from just about anything. Hickory, osage orange, ash, tan eucalyptus, white oak and ipe will last you a long, long time. The first two have the greatest impact strength. Some of the really hard exotics like cocobolo and kamagong can chip or shatter.

    Only one place can you give you the best quality bastons... Kombat Instruments Limited at www.bloodsport.com

    Don't go to any other place... Of course I'm bias cause K.I.L. is affiliated with the Dog Brothers and runned by a Dog Brother... But their bastons are top-notch quality... If the Dog Brothers use them, that means that they're the best...

    +1 for Kombat Instruments Limited.

    I have a pair of their 31inch 1.25diamater rattan sticks and they are unbelievable. They feel a lot like swinging tree trunks around, but actually aren't too heavy for big sticks. Nobody likes doing sinawali with me anymore :(

    And really, the KIL sticks aren't badly priced. They are a lot of stick for the money.

    I have seen your work with the knives (kerambits?) and you make good work; why not make your own?
    I buy a bunch of rattan from a supplier and i harden and prep the sticks myself. It is time consuming but worth it.

    I have been making my own for a while and so far it has last longer than the ones I bought commercially. Although the Kombat Instruments sticks looks really good and I have not tried it and being a cheapo, I prefer to save a little money rathern than buying online. Plus I enjoy making them now; people that I come across always ask me where I buy my rattan sticks. They are always surprised when I tell them that I made them.

    I recently sold the last sibat i made to a fellow martial artist and so far i haven't heard any complaints.
