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.
