Utilization on Iaito :
Please be aware that the blade of the Iaito are made of chromed alloy and therefore do not need any maintenance. We recommend to oil the blade regularly to help nourish the wood of the Saya from the inside, but we strongly advise against using Uchiko powder as it might slightly scratch the alloy.

Product Information & Size Chart

  • Higo Koshirae Minosaka Iaito (2.30 ~ 2.45 Shaku)

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Hamon : Suguha

    Habaki : Muji (gold) | Seppa : gold

    Tsuba : Maru Kuyomon | Menuki : Kenkatabami | Fuchi/Kashira : Higo

    Tsukaito & Sageo : Cotton, brown

    Saya : Chaishime

    The Higo Koshirae is the most popular Iaito among Japanese Iaidoists.
    For this model, we selected a round Kuromon style Tsuba (gold plated Kuyumon pattern), Higo style Fuchi and Kashira (rounded kashira), and a Kenkatabami (consisting in two crossing swords) style Menuki.

    To keep consistency in the design, we selected the brown Sageo and Tsukaito, gold plated Habaki and Seppa and Chaishime sayanuri (brown lacquer with sand effet, scratch resistant). Finally, in order to stay as sober as possible with the bright "gold/brown" fitting, we selected a very classic Suguha (straight) Hamon.

    These models also feature 2 Mekugi in order to guarantee maximal security.

    Blade is available in 2.30, 2.35, 2.40 and 2.45 shaku.

    The blade is made of reinforced high quality zinc/aluminium bubble-free alloy (duralumin). Note: Alloy blades do not cut and cannot be sharpened. 

    Just like the blade, all fitting parts are handmade in Japan and result in a 100% made in Japan product.
