Only Isu core wood that has been dry for over 200 years has the color, hardness, solidness and superb balance which make this Sunuke Bokuto so highly appreciated in Japan among high ranked Sensei from different martial art schools.

The Sunuke had a very mystical background. In the old days, and even now in some parts of the Kyushu Island, the wood is considered as a good omen. It is called Furochoju No Ki, what means "perpetual youth and longevity tree".
