Beautiful Sword!

Tozando Full Custom Iaito - Suzaku

Bought from Tozando because my Sensei says he won't accept lesser swords in his dojo. And I chose full custom because I wanted to choose a different Hamon (Kotetsu) and most other swords don't give you many (or any) options. Kotetsu is like two Hamons in one. You can't always see both lines however, as it depends on how the light hits it.

Attempted to get as few paid upgrades as possible as there are plenty of great options included. But I did pay extra for:
- Single Deep Groove bohi for the more pronounced swish sound. My Sensei told me it makes the sword too light, but it's too much fun not to get. If you are worried about the weight you could get the heavyweight sword with it instead.
- Shonai Silver-Plated Antique Finish Habaki and Silver Finish Seppa

- Got the red Tsukasame (ray skin). It's darker than I was expecting and darker than examples I've seen elsewhere. But it still looks nice
- To match the red & black theme I got the only red & black styled Fuchi & Kashira: Guribori - Blackened Brass (K-059-1BR3).
- Went with a bamboo theme for the Menuki (M-037-1AY2) and Tsubia (T-012-1SU9). Got Stainless Steel for the Tsubia as the sword is already aluminum, I never need to worry about rust. Although there are a lot of Iron options as well.
- Took a long time deciding on all the options. It's hard to know exactly how it will all look together.

Overall I'm pretty happy with it but it is pretty pricey. Duty in Canada was $55.

Had this beautiful custom iaito made in the span of a couple of months. Results precisely in line with expectations. Service and updates on point. For a blade that will last a lifetime, couldn't have asked for more
