my jo is made from tasmanian oak (australian wood) and is big, heavy, strong and (because I'm a tall bastard) long. It constantly gives my wrists grief, especially with those katate saburi, but I love using it for kumi-jo, especially watching peoples expressions when such a big thing comes at their head, really forces mai-ai down people's throats cause a whack from my big thing will render you senseless......haha

happiness. harmony. compassion.
