Sakura Higo Iaito Auction

This iaito is made in our special Iaito workshop in Gifu Prefecture.

The blade is made of sand-cast bubble-free zinc/aluminum alloy, perfect for capturing the feel of a shinken.  This foundation is then worked by hand into a beautiful finish with a Masamune hamon, shinken style bohi, and brass habaki.

The tsuba, fuchi, kashira and menuki all features sakura flowers (Japanese cherry blossoms), in a beautiful symphony symbolizing the coming of spring.

The 9 sun tsuka is wrapped in the morohineri-maki style with dark navy blue silk tsuka ito.  This covers the black same (ray skin) and matches the gloss black of the kuroro saya and dark navy silk of the sageo.

This is an in-stock iaito and will ship in approximately 1 to 3 working days after you make your order.

※This iaito has a slight imperfection on the saya. This will not effect the iaito's practicality and is generally very minor.
