A person's unbalance is the same as a weight.

"I found Phil to be a very knowledgeable fellow, and very pleasant to deal with, and that the man really takes pride in his work. We went through several measurements, to make sure that the pair of sai that I ordered would be the right fit. I ended up getting a pair of stainless steel sai, that had the antique finish, pointed tips, and a blue cotton wrapping that feels ever so much better than the awful leather grips that my generic sai have...The guy really knows what he's doing, and it's actually a pretty interesting process when you can see the metalworking being done...Overall? I'm pretty darn happy with my purchase, and anticipate on keeping this pair until I'm no longer capable of using them. The fact that he took a good bit of time to make sure that I got exactly what I wanted, gives that "happy customer" feeling, and I will be recommending his works to all of my students who train in saijutsu.

Phil is not only a Nana Dan (7th Degree Black Belt) but also a master machinist. Who better to trust in making my sais?...Within two weeks I had my sais in hand and I honestly couldn't be happier. They are very balanced and on the lighter side which is great.
I have had two sets of sai made by Phillip Worbington. Both sets are expertly made and hold up very well to contact training against bo and jo. Highly recommended.

These are hand made and perfectly balanced. The gentleman is a martial Artist and machinist who does beautiful work. These are amazing compared to the "other" McWeapon Sai. I just wanted to show the craftsmanship as they are awesome.
