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.

High Quality, Good Craftsmanship June 12, 2017
Reviewer: Jon  
Very high quality bokken. The craftsmanship is excellent, its beautiful, feels nice to hold and practice with. The wood is hard, and durable but soft and supple enough that it doesn't splinter. I would definitely buy again.

Excellent Bokken Shoto May 9, 2017
Reviewer: Fabius Quintus from Rome, Lazio Italy  
Nothing to say about the quality of the Bokken. It is superb! I cannot wait to start practicing Kodachi no Kata with it!
However, I must notice that the shape of its Iori does not resemble the Iori of the White Oak Bokken Daito that I had previously bought some years ago. While the Bokken Shoto has a pointed Iori, the Daito one has a flat Iori. Perhaps a change of style done by the craftsmen during the past years?

The Bokken is perfect! May 9, 2017
Reviewer: Luis Josue Aquino Carmona from CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio United States  
I had completed a purchase before and I was in love with my Bokken.
Now, the time had come to get an upgrade and I could not love my new white oak any more.
Shipping was also super fast! thanks a lot!

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.
