Whether you are a beginning or advanced student the iaito (unsharpened practice sword) is an essential part of your training equipment. The unsharpened edge, full tang, and carbon steel construction allows the practitioner to train their edge and build their strength with confidence.
This is the Junior Ko Katana edition. The shortened blade length, lighter weight and pulled back balance point make it ideal for young adults and shorter practitioners. The Ko Katana size also makes this sword ideal for training in areas with lower ceilings.
Please note this sword is not intended to be used for cutting.
