What is Kiri?
Kiri is also know as 'Paulownia Tomentosa'. Kiri is a extremely light and valuable wood that has been used for making wooden boxes for storing tea ceremony tools and Japanese Katana since ancient times in Japan. Because of it's extreme light weight softness, it's for contact practice but it can be used by children, women or people recovering from injuries for Kata practice, and have traditionally been used for Enbu (performances) and sword dances where it shows it's worth.
*Due to the concerns for the health of our wooden workshop artisans, varnish will be replaced by wax for the finishing of all of wooden weapons.
