In 2013 the samurai jidaigeki film Shundo (internationally known as Bushido) was released and Tozando partnered up with the writer and director Mikami Yasuo to help design and provide authentic props for the movie.
This Shundo Koshirae is a replica of the iaito used by the protagonist Harada Daihachiro, played by Hira Takehiro. This is a fully functioning and authentic iaito with copper fittings matching the dragon themed fittings of Harada's blades in the film.
You can select either to purchase just the iaito - suitable for standard Iaido practice, but if you also practice kodachi techniques then the Wakizashi is available separately or both can be purchased as a Daisho set. The Daisho set includes a sword rack.
These swords are proudly hand-crafted by our craftsmen in Gifu Prefecture, featuring zinc/aluminum cast blades. The iaito is available in sizes up to 2.45 Shaku, whilst the Wakizashi has a set length of 1.5 Shaku.
*Iaito are made with an aluminum zinc alloy blade and cannot be sharpened.
