What is Isu?

Isu wood comes from a tree that is officially called "Isu no ki".
Isu no Ki produces a exotic hardwood which can be split into Isu and Sunuke wood and can mainly be found south of Kyushu islands.
This wood is characterized by the fine grains and the warm and charming coloration, which ranges from a light creamy color to the dark chocolate color of Sunuke, gives it a feeling of exquisiteness. Isu is a hard wood, however, due to it's nature as a young wood, it's more prone to dents and damage due to impact, which is why it's not recommended for intense contact practice.
In the last few years, this material has become more and more rare, especially Sunuke which is extremely heavy and hard, and is mostly used to make high quality Bokken. Since it is both relatively hard and heavy, a lot of practitioners use Bokken made of this material for Kata practice in Japan.

3 of 5 Slower than normal service January 16, 2020
Reviewer: Julian Anthony Biddulph from Kuala Lumpur  
I’m a big fan of tozando and their rapid delivery times, especially when opting for a premium service.
But was disappointed this time around when I ordered 5 days before their winter break but didn’t get a response let alone shipment for a couple of weeks.
Good tachi bokken for the price, can easily practice around the house or grade with this.
