Product Information & Size Chart

Iaito Minosaka - Higo Koshirae Deluxe

High-end Iaito, fully made-to-order in Japan

"Higo" was a samurai clan of the Edo period whose swords were designed mainly for combat effectiveness. Although there were variations of the basic shape, a rounded kashira was an immutable characteristic of the blades of this clan. It is a very popular model in Japan.

The deluxe Higo Koshirae is fitted with Japanese silk Tsukaito and Sageo, and with gold- or silver-plated Habaki and Seppa. Silk offers a better durability compared to cotton and it allows to keep the iaito for many years before having to refurbish the Tsukaito. Like for the "Classic" version, the Kanagu can be customized and the Saya comes with two additional (optional) models, the "Super Deluxe" Fuji Kuroro and the Same Kuroro. Particular attention has been paid to details during the manufacturing of this high-end model.

This Iaito is handmade in Japan at the "Minosaka" forge using 100% Japanese materials. All accessories such as Tsuba, Menuki, Saya, etc. are also produced in Japan at traditional workshops specialized in the manufacturing of accessories for Shinken (real katana).
