SH5016 Hanwei Tsuru Iaito Training Sword Katana Unsharpened 27 5/8" Blade Iaito have long been the preferred training tools for safe practice of the many Japanese sword drawing arts typically known as Iaido. While not designed for sword-on-sword contact or actual test cutting, the non-sharp iaito is perfectly weighted and balanced for its designed task of safe and repetitive drawing practice.

Our Nami, Gorin, and Tsuru iaito are a breakthrough in design and functionality. Made of a special stainless steel, they are more durable than iaito made of aluminum alloy. Steel feels more like a live blade and is not prone to wobble when swung. Through a special tempering process these iaito do not have the brittle behavior often associated with stainless steel, but retain it's low maintenance rust resistant qualities.

These affordable iaito are the ideal training tools for safely practicing the ancient art of Iaido.

Pros: Blade Material
Cons: None
I love my Tsuru Iaito. I have used it for over 3 years in my Iaido practice and for the money this is a great workhorse of a weapon. The balance is incredible and it fits me like a glove. I love it so much I recently upgraded it by silver plating the tsuba, fuchi, koshira and menuki (habaki and seppas are already silver) while I was having the tsuka rewrapped with Lohman tsunami ito. I now call it Gintsuru (Silver Crane)
