The Murayama Iaito are hand-forged from Japan by experienced craftsmen in a traditional forge. Both the blade as the koshirae (fittings) are also handcrafted in Japan. A high quality Zinc/Aluminium blade with excellent balance and light weight with bo-hi. In Japan they only use Zinc aluminum metal because this is better for your joints. A lot of attention for the Tsuka (handle) with a tight wrapping of the Ito with real same (rayskin) for good grip and thereby an excellent command of your Iaito. The Murayama Iaito are thus composed with traditional materials for the serious Japanese swordsmanship practitioner. If you want to buy more Iaito’s please contact me.
