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 and Jo.

4 of 5 A Nice Rokushaku Bo April 21, 2019
Reviewer: PAUL HARPER from LOWESTOFT, Suffolk United Kingdom  
The Bo took just over seven days to arrive to me in the UK, that’s quick! The weight and feel of the white oak is very nice to handle, the 27mm diameter is just right.

5 of 5 Absolutely BOdacious June 7, 2018
Reviewer: Robert M from Alberta, Canada  
The dimensions were spot on: 181.8 cm by 27mm.
The weight and balance are excellent: for me a Shirogashi
Bo of this size is a dream to handle and manipulate - it feels like perfection in the hand. The Bo came unfinished, so it was a  little thirsty to begin with, but that's okay because I get to finish it the way I like - three treatments with double boiled linseed oil and my Bo looks pretty sharp. The shipping was phenomenal: it was at my door in like three days.  I will definitely shop at Tozando in the  future.

5 of 5 6-shaku bo May 27, 2018
Reviewer: Tom De Weirdt from Oost Vlaanderen Belgium  
Very nice and heavy bo. Will last for a very long time. The white oak has a beautiful fine wood grain structure.
The bo was nicely wrapped in bubble wrap.
Thanks Tozando for the good communication and excellent delivery!
