Product Description

“Tora Katana 1050 Iaito Series”

Tora (Tiger) – Symbolizes invincibility, power and might. In Japan, the tiger is associated with passion, ferocity, sensuality, speed and beauty. The animal is also known for its cruelty and wrath. According to Japanese tradition if you see a tiger in a dream it denotes the coming of a new power your way.

Our 1050 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.

Our 1050 Iaito Series are designed after Japanese made iaito. They are fast and agile as the blade thickness near the habaki is about 5-6mm which is much thinner compared to our regular swords. You wouldn’t believe how lightweight these swords are.

(Sharpened version of this sword is also available)

    My second sword, a battle ready katana or some call it practical katana, reason why is because its sharp and it can actually cut. very light weight compared to other swords they have, im not a practitioner of any discipline how ever this sword is a good choice for light handed hands like gurls and it comes with non sharpened version, sana me shirisaya version neto.
