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 Shoto/Chuto/Daito July 23, 2018
Reviewer: Glen Henry from Warner, Queensland Australia  
Similar quality to previous purchases.
some were good grain alignment some not.
When the grain is opening on the Ha (cutting edge), there is always more damage resulting from impacts when training in Shinto Muso Ryu and the associated arts.

overall delivery was slower than previous orders.
regards
Glen

Beautiful WELL-MADE bokken :) July 20, 2018
Reviewer: iLu from Lima, Peru  
Excellent craftsmanship!!The daito is smooth to touch yet strong and good weight to practice. It's my first bokken and it's truly sword-like. It doesn't have scratches or imperfections. It also arrived days before expected with no mail problems whatsoever ! :)
My sensei told me it is well-balanced.  My senpais like it very much and wonder where I got it.
ThanksTozando :D

White Oak Bokken May 17, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from New York United States  
Quality was great and delivery was amazing. When I got notice from UPS that delivery was expected 2 days after placing my order I thought it was a mistake because with free delivery, how could something like this possibly get from Japan to New York that fast? But it did - and I am very pleased.
