Product Description

Hey, we’re CLOSED but we still have a pile of bamboo.  Interested?  Minimum order is 1x Ten Pack of A Grade or 2x Ten Packs of A- Grade.  Or buy us out and the price is super low….cash and carry at $5.00 per 6′ section regardless of grade (plus PA tax at 6%).  We have less than one large storage unit of bamboo left and we’d love to empty the unit.  You’ll need a very large truck and lots of strong help.  It’s $10.00 per 6′ section if I have to move it again.  Email us: info@goldenwitch.com .

OK, we’ve got a bit of this that hasn’t sold.  Drake estimates there are 10-12 ten packs available as of 10/18/22.  Good luck!

Excellent – makers are snapping this stuff up!  As of 10/26/22 we’re down to 5 or 6 ten-packs of A Grade bamboo.  If you’ve been debating a purchase, time is very short….either the final A Grade will sell out, or we’ll be closed and that’s that.  The shop closes permanently for regular retail (web-store) sales when our home goes under contract, though of course I’ll still be here shipping the final orders until they’re out the door.  


FINAL INVENTORY!  Once this stuff sells out, it’s gone.  Only about 32 remaining ten-packs as of 8/29/22.  I say “about” because some folks aren’t buying full ten-packs.  At the rate bamboo is selling, we will be sold out of A grade before we shut down.  Order now before we pull this product from the webstore.  The A+ Grade is sold out, so that should be your ‘head’s up’ not to hesitate if you want A Grade.  If you need bulk bamboo, the A- Grade in Ten Packs has been highly discounted to help move out the excess inventory.

8/28/22:  Folks, I need to emphasize while December 14th is still the last possible day that GW & Peak Bamboo will be open on a full time basis, there is a VERY strong chance we’ll close sooner.  Our home goes on the market shortly (late September/early October) and the moment the house is under contract, I’ll close the webstore, pack any remaining orders, and that’s that…it’s done.  If you want bamboo, buy the culms now while you have the opportunity.  As folks who ‘wanted’ but didn’t immediately order agate guides discovered, once the item is sold out, or the item is marked ‘out of stock,’ or the webstore is turned off, it is too late.  Please take me seriously.  This whole endeavor isn’t like your local used furniture store doing it’s thrice-annual “Going Out of Business” sale.  We are going out of business in Pennsylvania, thus in the United States, and only *might* re-open from Curacao in 2024 if I decide to.  We won’t be selling bamboo from Curacao.


Inventory Reduction Sale:  This is the A Grade Ten Pack Bamboo page, but we’re offering a special that includes some A- Bamboo…it’s the new “10 Plus 2” deal.  If you request “10 Plus 2” in the comments section of your order for a ten pack of A Bamboo, then we’ll add two culms of A- bamboo to your order at no extra charge.  We simply have too much A- bamboo on our shelves because folks tend to order the higher grades.  Request the deal and you’ll score two lower grade culms that you can use for flamed rods, practice culms, taper experimentation, ski poles, or anything else you might imagine.


Ten packs of A Grade Peak Bamboo normally retail for $749.55 + S/H/I.

Inventory Reduction Sale:  This is the sale price noted in the webstore.  We’re offering this modest discount to help balance our inventory by sweetening the price of our most popular grade, A Grade.  We sell more A Grade than any other grade, but we also have lots of it.  Our second load of bamboo leans strongly toward the A Grade.  As above, you may request “10 Plus 2” and we’ll add two culms of A- bamboo to your boxes.  Expect to pay a bit more for shipping than you’d spend for just a 10 pack.  If you do not request “10 Plus 2” then we assume that you don’t want to pay the added shipping and we will not add the extra culms to your boxes.  Once packed, we cannot add the two culms to the order because 12 packs ship in different boxes than the ten packs.

RE Drying Splits:

Culms WITHOUT A Drying Split may travel better, but may also develop entirely random check splits due to temperature and humidity variations; Culms WITH A Drying Split will have, obviously, the drying split and they will also have a hinge split opposite the drying split…these culms are more compressible and may develop additional “handling” splits especially at the ends of culms, but they are less likely to develop random splits. It really is six of one, half a dozen of the other. Pick your poison.  Or travel to pick them up yourself, which is the best way to secure 12′ sticks and to protect your investment.  We offer Open Warehouse Saturdays approximately once per month.

RE Length, we have two options:

  • 12′ cut into halves (Approx. 71” after sawing; clearly marked and bundled)
  • 12′ cut into thirds (Approx.. 47” after sawing; clearly marked and bundled)


ROUGH U.S. Shipping Estimates:  These are just ballpark estimates and you’ll note that the shipping drops dramatically as you move from one to six culms. A single culm is running $85-$120 to most Continental US locations, but it’s the box length and ‘dimensional weight’ that drive up the initial shipping cost. Two culms would be in the range of $95 -$135.00. By six culms you’re looking at $145-$195. At ten culms figure $22.00-$35/culm depending on location. Individual culm weight does come into play, and the average A+ stick weighs more than the average A- stick, so ten of one grade vs. ten of another grade would have modestly different shipping costs to the same location. If we run a sale that offers you the chance to request an extra culm or two, expect that the free culm(s) will still add to your shipping expense.Individual culm weight does come into play, and the average A+ stick weighs more than the average A- stick, so ten of one grade vs. ten of another grade would have modestly different shipping costs to the same location.  If we run a sale that offers you the chance to request an extra culm or two, expect that the free culm(s) will still add to your shipping expense.
