Custom-made Minosaka Wakizashi Iaito

About our Minosaka Wakizashi Iaito collection

Minosaka is a small workshop located in the Gifu prefecture, the birthplace of the Katana (Shinken). Despite its small size, Minosaka is one of the most important Iaito workshops in Japan. Our team has been proposing Minosaka products for several years and our customers reckon that this is the best quality available in Japan. All fittings are fully handmade in Japan by craftsmen also producing fittings for real Shinken (learn more about Minosaka and Iaito manufacture on our blog).

In this collection, you will find all Minosaka Wakizashi. Only the Jidai, Higo and Hon Koshirae are available as Wakizashi. Please find herein our selection of highly customizable models. Tsuba, Menuki, Tsukaito, and Hamon selections can yield thousands of possible permutations for a totally custom Iaito. 

Similarly to all our Iaito, Wakizashi blades are made of high quality bubble-free aluminium/zinc alloy and therefore, the blade cannot be sharpened. The manufacturing time is three to four weeks depending on the chosen options. Note that we also offer a spare saya product if you need a spare with your Iaito/Wakizashi or a replacement.
