Product Information & Size Chart

  • Iaito Minosaka - Hon Koshirae (2.45 ~ 2.55 Shaku)

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Hamon : Suguha

    Habaki : Muji (silver) | Seppa : Silver

    Tsuba : Icho zogan | Menuki : Ryu (big) | Fuchi/Kashira : Guribori (Hon Jidai)

    Tsukaito & Sageo : Silk, blue

    Saya : Hon Kuroishime

    Based on the Kanbun style blade (17th century), the Hon Koshirae is a heavy model designed for advanced practitioners.
    This cold (silver/blue) design, model features all the best kanagu (pieces) available at Minosaka workshop.

    Silver plated Seppa and Habaki, silver plated pattern on Kasuga Tsuba, copper Ryu (dragon) Menuki; "Hon jidai" style Fuchi / Kashira and silk blue Sageo & Tsukaito.

    The Sayanuri (lacquer) is coated with the strongest scratch resistant Kuroishime lacquer (black color with sanding effect). Unlike standard Kuroishime lacquer, the process used for this saya is called "Hon Kuroishime" (real Kuroishime) which is the same process used for high grade real Shinken. The grain is far thinner than that of the standard Ishime finish and there are twice as many layers of lacquer.

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

    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.
