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.

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.

Very good product July 10, 2017
Reviewer: Minh from Hanoi, Hanoi Vietnam  
The only thing I don't like about this bokuto is that white oak is quite prone to dirt in my country due to the hot and humid weather. After a few months, the white becomes grey.

Dispite that fact, the daito is very well balanced and beautiful. It fit well in my hands (which are S size) and I don't doubt it will last against our kata training, which includes some full contact moves.

I always apply munipulo oil on my bokuto, so the white oak becomes a bit like gold/yellow oak. It also increases the weight of the bokuto to fit my taste.

I strongly recommend this bokuto to all my friends in the club.
