CISH6003IGG: Musashi iaito - 29" Blade
CAS Hanwei

The Musashi Iaito provides an economical yet authentic sword for the Iaido practitioner. Available in 3 blade lengths (27, 28, 29) to perfectly match your needs. The blade is unedged for safety and forged from steel for more precise weight and balance than an aluminum blade can offer. The blade is also maintenance free, providing a lifetime of practice without worry of rust or tarnish. Miyamoto Musashi, arguably the most famous swordmaster in Japanese history, fought more than 60 duels before retiring and writing his famous treatise on swordplay, the “Book of Five Rings”. Development of the two-sword style of swordplay, with the Daito (long sword) and Wakizashi being used together, is credited to Musashi. Mounted in black, the Musashi Elite is faithful to the original down to the famous double-ring iron tsubas. The tsuka-ito is in leather over ray skin.

Frequent Drawing Practice
These unedged training blades provide for safe drawing for the beginning practitioner of the 450 year old art of Iaido. Forged from stainless steel the tempered blades are not only maintenance-free but more importantly provide the correct weight and balance needed for the rigors of repetitive drawing and sword motion practice. Each blade has a deeply cut groove (bo-hi) to provide audible feedback when swung properly.

Great Iaito, great price!
I picked up my 29: Musashi Iaito about 18 months ago from knife center. I use it 2-3 times a week and it's held up remarkably well. It's a very well balanced, well made sword with a beautiful hama. This sword has maide Iaido far more satisfying. The balance is world's better than my previous swords and my teacher is now considering getting one himself as he likes it more than the custom sword he had made in Japan. Just a great piece and Knife Center was easy and great to deal with.
