Iaido / Iaito Swords

Iaido / Iaito Swords
5 stars - reviews

Designed to be perfectly balanced for iaido and kenjutsu kata forms along with other Japanese sword martial arts, our iaito swords offer a more traditional alternative to the many zinc aluminum alloy blades available. After all, the purpose of training with an iaito is so you'll be ready to use a proper steel shinken when the time comes. Hardened carbon steel iaido swords are made with better balance and greater durability. Whether katana or wakizashi, you'll find many 1060 high carbon steel blade swords for sale in this section, and the reason is simple; 1060 steel offers an excellent compromise between hardness and durability, and it's low weight puts less stress on your wrist when practicing iai forms.

Each iaito sword model comes with a bo-hi (blood groove or fuller), which helps reduce weight and also guides you in your training with the audible Tachi-Kaze wind sound it creates. Each sword also has the option to be either unsharpened (Iaito) for iaido practice or sharpened (Shinken) for functional use, so when you're ready to move on to a shinken you can come back and get the same sword with a sharpened edge for tameshigiri. We offer free shipping to USA, UK, Canada, and Australia along with all of Europe and most other countries.
