Practice Sword  (Iaitō) - Inazuma

Iaito (居合刀) is a modern metal practice sword, without a cutting edge, used primarily for practicing iaido. This sword, called Inazuma, its name meaning “a flash of lightning”, is a concept that every student of iai should be aiming for in their techniques.

This model is specifically targeted toward iaido kata with a special focus on performance based customisation - Inazuma comes with a huge choice of options at no extra cost to make your iaito totally individual. 

It is forged and folded lightweight 1095 blade is constructed to be marginally thinner and therefore an ideal weight for iaido practice - not as heavy as a traditional shinken yet not as light as its zinc alloy counterpart, making kata easy and controlled.
