Musashi Iaito

This an elegant and beautiful iaito, it handles really well and the sound from it is fantastic,
It lighter than my other iaito and feels more balanced in the hand I ordered this in Nov 23 and it arrived last week (it got stuck in UK customs for over 3 months, but was definitely worth the wait and patience whilst custom helped with the process of clearing it)
Many thanks to the Tozando team


I am so grateful for this purchase. How elegant this Iaito is ! I Love it and plan on bringing my business back to Tozando in the future. Thank you Tozando !!!
