This is the upgraded version of our Musashi Iaito Katana, better Musashi style tsuba, with iron fuchi-kashira.
Our Iaito Series are non-sharpened swords which are made the same way as our live blades, except the edge is dull. These swords are made specifically for practicing iai or kata with the same feel of a real sword without the risk of cutting or injuring yourself or someone else. The blade width is the same as our regular swords, about 31-32mm. The blade thickness near the habaki is also the same as our regular swords which is about 7.2mm, but it tapers to 4mm at the tip. Our regular swords tapers to 5.5mm at the tip. Even with a few millimeter difference, there’s a considerable change in weight making our iaito lighter. Since they’re lighter, you’ll be able to perform kata with them faster, and you won’t strain your wrist or arms while training for hours.
(Sharpened version of this sword is also available)
More subtle wire brushed hamon which looks like a real hamon.
