They are best suited for practice in all sword arts, completion cutting, and collecting. The Japanese Katanas, hand-made by Thaitsuki Nihonto, are of the highest quality, traditionally made and perfected for over 400 years. Thaitsuki Nihonto has been producing Japanese swords for professional collectors and practitioners of Iaido, Iaijutsu, and Kenjutsu for over 400 years !
The Thaitsuki Japanese Iaito is specially handmade and forged from special high carbon Japanese steel making it an extremely functional, strong and flexible blade with bo-hi (groove).
The tsuka (handle) is covered in same' (ray skin) and the Tsuka Ito (handle wrap) is 100% Japanese Cotton. The Koshirae (sword mounting/fittings) are handmade from Iron.
