The Jidai Koshirae is of a standard Japanese quality that offers a very good quality/price rate.
Our team has been recommending this model for several years to Iaido beginners. It also makes a fine choice for Aikidoists looking for a practical Iaito.

This Jidai Koshirae is available in sizes from 2.30 shaku to 2.45 shaku. The blade Hamon (pattern) is a classic Suguha (straight) Hamon. It features Copper Habaki and Bronze Seppa, a classic Kasuga (spring sun) Tsuba and traditional Sakura (cherry blossom) pattern Fuchi, Kashira, and Menuki. Tsukaito and Sageo are made of traditional black Kakucho weaved cotton.
Kuroishime (black with sanding effect), which is the strongest lacquer available (scratch resistant) is used for the Sayanuri (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.
