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.

Amazing November 9, 2016
Reviewer: CLking from Chile  
The first weapon I bought from Tozando was my jo, I was attracted because of the free shiping. I couldn't make a better decision, the quality and durability of Tozando weapons are second to none. From that moment I only buy my weapons to Tozando.

This bokken is no exception, great quality and durability. I've been using it for several months and it looks almost brand new.

Pleasurable customer service April 17, 2016
Reviewer: Kosmas from Kuching, Sarawak Malaysia  
The item arrived in less than 1 week, compared to other site where it usually takes 2 weeks or more. and its very light, suitable for easily tired people who prefer to use lighter bokken. tozando is my favorite supplier for equipment now.

Great quality! July 8, 2015
Reviewer: James Archer from Rangeville, Queensland Australia  
A very nice bokken indeed, suitable for Kendo or Jodo because of the ridge shape in the back. A pleasure to train with...will be returning to this style when I next need a bokken.
