Product Information & Size Chart

  • Iaito Minosaka - Hon Koshirae Classic

    High-end Iaito, fully order-made in Japan

    The Hon Koshirae is a heavy Iaito specially designed with advanced practitioners in mind. The blades are replicas from the 17th century Kanbun Shinto. This is the most popular model among advanced practitioners who appreciate its weight and excellent value. Ideal for kata training and suburi practice, this model is not recommended for beginners due to its heaviness.

    In its "Classic" version, this Iaito is proposed with braided cotton. Two Deluxe Tsuba, high-end Saya lacquers and Tsuba length extension are paid options. Higo Koshirae is also available in the "Deluxe" version (Silk weaving and other additional options). Particular attention to details has been paid for the realization of this high-end model.

    This is probable our best Iaito in terms of value for money. It is handmade in Japan at the "Minosaka" workshop using 100% Japanese materials. All accessories such as Tsuba, Meuki, Saya, etc. are also manufactured in Japan by traditional workshops specialized in the manufacturing of accessories for Shinken (real Katana).
