Minosaka Jidai Koshirae Wakizashi

$384.40

If you are a beginner looking for a good quality Iaito in a reasonable price range, this Jidai Koshirae is a good choice. It features decent quality fittings and is made by hand in Minosaka's Gifu workshop. The blade is made of a light-weight, reinforced zinc/aluminum alloy.

The koshirae is also available as a simple wakizashi that compliments and matches its larger iaito cousin. Perfect for practitioners that practice shoto kata alongside their diato curriculum. This koshirae matches the fittings used in the Minosaka Jidai Koshirae Iaito and is meant to join that sword as a pair.

Please note that this is not a suitable shoto for kendo kata, the blades are made from a lightweight zinc/aluminium alloy that are not suitable for contact kata.

Both swords are available together as a daisho set.
