This is a simple yet splendidly practical Koshirae made for with actual combat in mind.
The Satsuma Koshirae is based on the swords used by the Satsuma army during the Satsuma rebellion during the late 1870s,
most famously, by the Leader of the Satsuma army, Saigo Takamori. It is also worth mentioning that the movie "The Last Samurai" is loosely based on the events of the Satsuma rebellion.

The Satsuma Koshirae features a Ryugo-style 1.10 Shaku (33.3cm) Tsuka, which is wrapped tightly in Ikkanmaki style and in accordance to Satsuma tradition. The Tsuka have two mekugi for extra stability. What makes this Tsuka special is that it does not use Same for the Tsukasame, but instead uses black lacquered cow leather for a refined and unique look.
The Tsuba is made of Iron and features a quadratic design with a simple "rain" pattern with two holes for Nukite.
The Blade is made of Reinforces Aluminium/Zinc alloy and has two grooves on the blade, one thicker and one slimmer to make the blade lighter and a Notare Hamon pattern.

Approximate weight is 1500~1650grams without the Saya (might differ depending on the final length of the blade).
The weight and length make this Iaito the longest and heaviest among all Iaito we offer.
