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.

White Oak Deluxe Bokken August 26, 2017
Reviewer: Adrian Natayudha from Padang, West Sumatera Indonesia  
the oak is nice & neat, it's far lighter than my old bokken but the balance is pretty good.

Beautiful work but weight not included August 9, 2017
Reviewer: Caleb Lanford from Cambridge, MA United States  
This bokken is sturdy, beautifully made, and was shipped with incredible speed. The only problem is that I feel weights should be listed for bokken, as this can be important for beginners and those moving beyond. Otherwise, fantastic!
