What is Japanese Red Oak?

The Red Oak Wood used for Japanese Bokken, also called 'Akagashi', greatly differs from the Red Oak Wood referred to when speaking about North American Bokken.
While the North American Oak and Japanese Oak are related, the Japanese 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.
Akagashi on the other hand has a structure that is uniformly hard, has excellent dent resistance and has better impact strength than American Oaks.
Nowadays Akagashi is a quite rare and expensive even in Japan, and is mostly used for making high quality Bokken.

red oak bokken with wooden saya May 11, 2017
Reviewer: Dennis Tiong Leong Tang from Singapore, Singapore Singapore  
fast delivery, good product. weight is well balanced, though the closure tends to get a little stuck (probably from excess paint) so in order to have a smooth slide, i have to apply talcum powder on the blade from time to time.
