This very special Suzaku brings many unique characteristics together to create a one of a kind iaito. The tsuka same is a bold red and is wrapped in exquisite black leather kakate maki with above and below moro-hineri maki allowing the deep red color to remain visible. On the fuchi and kashira, a silver dragon flies among clouds. The kiku-sukashi is a clear chrysanthemum which is then crowned with an antique finish habaki that leads to the blade. The genuine black silk sageo and kuroro saya tie this together as a truly special Suzaku Iaito
This koshirae is one of the few remaining Suzaku GT Metal iaito, made in Kyoto with a gravity cast blade that is denser than other standard iaito and features a shinken hisaki and marutome on the groove - giving it that extra edge of authenticity.
This is an iaito made in Japan, as such the blade is made from zinc/alluminium alloy and cannot be sharpened as per Japanese law.
※As these are some of the last of our Made in Kyoto Suzaku Iaito, some iaito may have slight imperfections or blemishes on the saya or other parts of the sword. These will not effect the iaito's practicality and are generally very slight.
This is an in-stock iaito and will ship in approximately 1 to 3 working days after you make your order. Please bear in mind as this part of a limited run sale of remaining stock, it is not possible to return or exchange.
