  • Musashi Koshirae Deluxe Iaito

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

    The Musashi Koshirae Iaito is a very simple Iaito model, alike the sword of Miyamoto Musashi. According to one of the originals (Musashi possessed several swords), this model is emphasizes utility and efficiency. The Tsuba "Shichiho" in wrought iron is exclusively available for this model (the Tsuba "Musashi" available as option was the one used by Miyamoto Musashi).

    The deluxe Musashi Koshirae is fitted with a 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.

    The Kanagu can be customized and the Saya comes with two additional (optional) models, the "Super Deluxe" Fuji Kuroro and the Same Kuroro. We do recommend to stick with the original mount of this Musashi Katana reproduction, shown on the pictures, featuring: a "Tsukushi" Menuki, a Shonai style Habaki, a Notare Hamon, a Shippo (or a Musashi) Tsuba, black Sageo and Tsukaito and Chaishime Saya.

    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). High attention has been paid to details during the manufacturing of this high-end model.
