Description

I wasn't even sure what this was when I came across it in my dad's garage. Then the cork on one end fell out and the two tips were inside. I did quite a bit of searching around before I found the name Tenkara, and that seems to fit the rod I have here. I don't have any more information on it. The handle case measures 40 inches. Each tip measures 38.5 inches. The weight with the handle and both tips, is 9.6 ounces on my digital scale. I'm guessing the cork in one end is not original, but it does the job. The brass on the other end, I assume opens to insert the tips, but I can't get it apart and I don't want to force it. I don't see any damage to the tips, but there is some corrosion on the metal pieces. All wrapping seems to be intact. The handle does have a couple of splits in it, but the integrity is still there. Got to love bamboo!

If I'm wrong about anything here, please feel free to correct me! I'm out of my scope of knowledge with this. I would think this would be easy to restore if desired. Or leave it in it's original state!
