This Deluxe White Oak Bokken is made of selected high quality Japanese White Oak (Shirakashi).
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.

Feels sturdy and well balanced August 20, 2018
Reviewer: Kestutis Triponis from Kaunas, Kauno m. sav. Lithuania  
I previously used a shiro kashi bokuto I bought locally and while I had no complains I wanted something more refined and for some odd reason after getting this one I am no longer convinced that my previous bokuto was actually oak as this one has more distinct grain and feels even heavier, while still miles from a Iaito, for kendo this is probably as close as it can get.
