In the study of Japanese sword arts, speed and precision are critical. Duels ended quickly with the faster, more skilled swordsman being the one to walk away. In modern times, Japanese sword arts have moved beyond the practical and become arts of exercise and meditation, helping the practitioner to hone their bodies, minds and spirits.

If one wishes to pursue study of Japanese sword arts, one must first acquire a good beginner's sword. In iaido specifically, beginners all start with iaito, or unsharpened swords. This allows practitioners to practice with what is, for all intents and purposes, a real sword, and helps get them used to weight, balance, safety and maintenance procedures without the danger element a sharpened blade brings. It is always best to start with a light iaito and work up to heavier swords as muscle tone and skill level increase.

This stainless steel iaito is perfect for both beginning and advanced students of iaido who are looking for something a little heavier. It is made of stainless steel, giving it the weight and feel of a real sword. It features a prominent bo hi which offers an audible whistle when edge alignment is correct. Itís also aesthetically pleasing; it features a lovely etched hamon, sukashi tsuba, real ray skin and chemical fiber ito.
