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.

Beautiful work but weight not included August 9, 2017
Reviewer: Caleb Lanford from Cambridge, MA United States  
This bokken is sturdy, beautifully made, and was shipped with incredible speed. The only problem is that I feel weights should be listed for bokken, as this can be important for beginners and those moving beyond. Otherwise, fantastic!

OK product. July 20, 2017
Reviewer: Jaana Lindström  
When i first got this bokken i wasn't very happy with it. it had tons of marks and was really rough along the blade. After speaking with Tozando they sent me another one at no cost. Altough it's not perfect it was much better than the old one. Despite the product being OK i probably wont shop at Tozando again because of the inconvenience.

Fantastic booked, great quality July 16, 2017
Reviewer: Sean Kelleher from Victoria Australia  
A very nicely finished book an, excellent weight and balance. The polish is just right, a mix of protection for the wood but not too tacky to create blisters. Highly recommended.
