Samurai Katana Iai
SAMURAI KATANA IAI....... If you need a very durable, high quality training sword.... the quest is over! This is it!
This is the Iaito version of the Musashi Katana. The sword has been created with the same exceptional quality as its predecessor but with an unedged Ha. The Iaito is the best and safest way to practice the Japanese sword arts and has a feel that is identical to a live blade and more durable than aluminum alloy. This practice sword is the ideal training tool to safely practice the ancient art of Iaido. It comes with a FREE black cloth sword bag and FREE sword cleaning / maintenance kit.
The blade has been hand crafted from through hardened 1060 high carbon steel. A Bohi has been added to the top of the blade to better balance the blade and give audible feedback when the sword is swung. An aesthetic Hamon runs the length of the blade ending at the blade's Kissaki. The blade is full tang and comes unsharpened. The Saya of the sword is constructed of wood with a dull gloss black finish. A black cotton Sageo has been tied around a bright brass-fitted Kurigata. The Koiguchi has been hardened to safely secure the blade when sheathed. The Habaki is a solid one piece brass construction over a brass Seppa. The Tsuba has been constructed from blackened steel alloy in the classic Musashi Sukashi Two Cucumbers (double ring) design. Tsuka: The Fuchi is blackened steel. The Tsuka core is hard wood with authentic Same (ray skin) and black cotton Ito. Brass Menuki decorate each side of the Tsuka. Two Bamboo Mekugi secure the tang in the Tsuka. The Kashira is blackened steel.
