- COVID-19 INFORMATION -
Japan Post has decided to suspend all shipments to more than 120 countries. FedEx shipments are suspended worldwide. DHL has implemented a significant price surcharge and suspended shipment to some countries and updates partial suspensions daily. Therefore, Seido is no longer in capacity to promise that your orders will ship on the announce date below.
  • We recommend all customers to upgrade the shipping method at checkout if the displayed shipping method is "Japan Post".
  • We will email you on or before the announced shipping date if your order cannot ship. We may offer you a paid shipping upgrade if you want your order shipped via one of the few priority services that remains active with one of our carriers (FedEx, UPS and DHL).
  • Packages that are longer than 120 cm are subject to additional restrictions so all packages containing weapons longer than 119 cm are more subject to delays than others.
  • As of today, we are still able to ship almost normally to:
    United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Singapore, Finland, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Norway, Romania, Mexico, Denmark, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Philippines, South Korea and Slovakia.
    (This is not a guarantee that we will be able to ship, especially items above 120 cm in length, but we do not expect major issues for those destinations).
  • Other orders will be put prepared, packed and stored until one of the 5 cariers we are working with reopens the destination (you will be updated via email).

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.
