Fear no Retreat like the Dragon Fly!
Based on the theme of victory, the Katsumushi Iaito takes on the nature of the dragon-fly; constantly moving forward. The Tombo Sukashi tsuba features an antique relief of the two dragon flies; complimented by a matching menuki of silver tombo (dragon flies) in an antique finish. The Katsumushi fuchi/kashira, resemble a (dragon fly theme). Saya choices on the Iaito, include kuroro (glossy black), kuro-ishime (matte black), cha-ishime (matte brown) or Anju-Ishime, all of which include hitodome. Suguha or Kanesada (signature hamon) are available on the Katsumushi toshin. Choose from 100% cotton wrapping in black or white on white ray skin.

Sand-cast Flex Resistant Zinc Aluminum Alloy Blade
Sand-casted blades are among the most widely used blades in Iaito. At approximately 800g, the sand-casted blade is very well balanced, with the balance point being near the tsuba as opposed to it being near the tip of the iaito.
