This "Aikuchi Iaito Tanto Koshirae" is a very classic, rounded Saya Tanto. The blade is made of a reinforced aluminum alloy by the Jisei workshop, with the same techniques used to make their Iaito blades. Made without groove, with a very realistic niju hamon, it perfectly imitates a Shinken blade.
The construction is sturdy, and although it doesn't cut, the Kissaki is very sharp and the blade is solid, which makes this product relatively dangerous.
This is an ideal model for realistic tanto-dori training, and of course, a perfect maezashi for Iai training.
We offer two variants of this model, black and navy.
- Black version: black lacquer, Yujo style gold plated Habaki, high-end 2 colors (white/navy) Sanada Himo sageo.
- Navy version: navy lacquer, Yujo style silver plated Habaki, high-end 4 colors (white/gold/red/navy) Sanada Himo sageo.
Maintenance: Clean the blade with a dry cloth. Oiling the blade is not necessary thanks to the stainless aluminum alloy, but it can nourish the wood of the saya. Never use Uchiko (polishing powder), it might damage the blade.
