Information Sizing

To stay close to a real sword shape, it features a ridged spine called Kenmine (literally "sword ridge"), and rounded handle butt.

This bokken is made is one of the most reputed workshop in all Japan, in Miyakonojō, at the heart of bokken crafting in Kyūshū.

What is Japanese White Oak?
The White Oak Wood used for Japanese Bokken, also called 'Shiragashi', 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.
Shiragashi 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 Shiragashi has denser grains which also makes it slightly heavier and more preferable as material for Bokken.
Because of the durability and weight of Shiragashi, it's widely regarded as great material for making high quality Bokken.

I would have liked a "free shipping saya" as with the tsuba/tsubadome.

Excellent! May 19, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Solihull, West Midlands United Kingdom  
Very good hand feeling. If they can avoid using DHL for post would be much better, as they charge extra admin fee £11 for imported goods!

Where is it? May 12, 2019
Reviewer: Donald Nollet from Owatonna, Minnesota United States  
Ordered almost two weeks ago, got message it was shipped, have heard nothing more, nor have I received anything.  Still waiting, but usually don't get satisfaction survey until AFTER item arrives. "Poor" is not about product! Not received yet, so reference to delivery.
