Does anyone have tips for prolonging the life of Bokken and Jo?

Inspecting my weapons the other night I noticed the grain of the my white oak jo was starting to show signs of splits and cracks - I think a lot of the problem is due to the poor quality of the timber used (it was a cheap taiwanese import).

Is there something I could have done to prevent this, and is there anything I could do now (beyond throwing the jo away and buying a new one).
