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.

5 of 5 Excellent Experience February 7, 2020
Reviewer: James Bush from Texas, United States  
I purchased this Jo to add Suburi forms to my workout. Out of all the products I checked online, Tozando looked to have the best product for price.

After ordering I realized I got a great product. The Jo is straight, balanced, and smooth. It fits my needs excellently.

Shipping from Tozando to Texas was surprisingly fast and no issues occurred.

I will purchase from Tozando again and recommend this company to others.

5 of 5 Great experience and great product! January 17, 2020
Reviewer: Justin Chien from Boston, Massachusetts United States  
I ordered two Jo's with engraving. I wasn't sure how it may look like with the picture provided for the engraving. Not only the jo is made of quality wood, the jo is straight and solid, and the engraving was perfect! I was also concerning how it would turn out: ordering something from Japan to be delivered to USA. Well, I will do it again. Good quality product and good communication. I am glad I found a good company!

Reviewer: Edmund Wong from Singapore, Singapore Singapore  
Very well balanced Jo. So straight that you stand it up on its own. Finishing is smooth and it is a joy to practice kata with.
