This is a Standard White Oak Jo widely used by Aikido, Jodo and Koryu practitioners, great for hard hitting practice. Unlike any other Jo made outside of Japan, this solid one-piece, Japanese white oak Jo is ready for your uncompromising hard practice. This is the lightest and quickest white oak Jo we have.
Please see the pic 2 for diameter comparison (first from left).


What is Japanese White Oak?

The White Oak Wood used for Japanese Bokken, also called 'Shirogashi', greatly differs from the White Oak Wood referred to when speaking about North American Bokken.
While the North American Oak and Japanese Oak are related, the Japanese White Oak tree is evergreen, due to this it does not have a conspicuous open grain like the American White and Red Oak.
The open grain structure, of the American Oak wood produces soft areas which are more prone to impact damage.
Shirogashi on the other hand has a structure that is uniformly hard, has excellent dent resistance and has better impact strength than American Oaks.
Compared to Akagashi the Shirogashi has denser grains which also makes it slightly heavier and more preferable as material for Bokken.
Because of the durability and weight of Shirogashi, it's widely regarded as great material for making high quality Bokken and Jo.

5 of 5 Size and heft is so well balanced! May 3, 2020
Reviewer: Karma Lhundup from Portland, Oregon United States  
I’m 5 foot 9 inches and 165 lbs. The width of the jo is perfect for me and so is the length. The profile is slim and yet the weight is hefty, you can’t do better than this!
