27" Blade Length Aluminum Iaito Unsharpen Training Katana Practice Samurai Sword
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.
Our Ohané is a perfect iaito for both beginning and advanced students of iaido. It is very light and fast, aiding in proper technique application. It features a prominent bohi which offers an audible whistle when edge alignment is correct. It’s also aesthetically pleasing; it features a lovely etched hamon, sukashi tsuba, real ray skin and cotton ito. Ohané: feather light.
The sword comes with a FREE black sword bag.
