Reza, if a bokuto is meant for practice of basic sword strokes (suburi) only, I don't think the type of wood would matter as much. Most suburito you run into are made of red oak, because that wood is reasonably cheap and does the job. Many of the locally available woods in Indonesia or Malaysia would be suitable; just get one made in a wood you like. I think the weight and balance of the suburito should be more important considerations. That, and tennis elbow...
