Nishijin Collection - Yayumi Gassen Iaito
Nishijin Collection Iaito
This wonderful iaito, with battlefield and arrow motifs, wrapped in a delicate lavender silk, would come straight from an area of Kyoto renowned for its prowess in the production of traditional Japanese textiles. Nishijin is also well known for being a historical army camp from before the Edo Period (this being what Nishijin actually means).
The blade is made of GT Metal - denser and stronger than regular iaito, perfect for capturing the feel of a shinken. This foundation is then worked by hand into a beautiful finish and completed with a practical kuroishime saya.
This is an in-stock iaito and will ship in approximately 1 to 3 working days after you make your order.
