Information
 
Tensho Koshirae was first designed as a reproduction of the original Tensho Koshirae sword owned by Akechi Mitsuharu.

For the idea, the copper Fuchigane is finished in antique style and we use a genuine water buffalo horn for the Tsukagashira. Such a sword with the dignified appearance and the spirit, you cannot get at anywhere else. The Sageo is made in the traditional Kaikuchi style. Please note that the picture on this page shows this Sageo in Navy Silk. The zinc/aluminum alloy blade is reinforced with the latest technology of sandcasting and the length is available up to 2.55 Shaku. Made in Japan.

Poor October 20, 2017
Reviewer: Craig Elkin from Haddam, Ct United States  
Iaito is a disappointment. I hope to have the situation resolved and waiting to hear back from tozando. Iaito rattles badly in the saya, there is roughness of the blade in the bo-hi, and the tsukagashira is plastic. Very poor for this price. Clearly poor quality control. Clearly saya was off the rack

Nice iaito February 7, 2017
Reviewer: Ting-Yi Wu from Taipei, Taiwan  
This is a nice tensho koshirae, the balance is very good and fittings are also nice on this iaito. Waiting time after placing order is around 3 weeks.

After 5 years April 22, 2013
Reviewer: Mathieu Tremblay from Mirabel, Quebec Canada  
I bought this iaito almost 5 years ago, I'll focus on a long term review. As it is expected from all sword, the wood of the tsuka dried out a bit, loosening the upper parts of the koshirae but this is VERY MINIMAL. I have a seppa moving a bit (you can hear it slightly  on chiburi ) but that's it. Not even worth fixing so far. The saya is still impeccable (I've broken sayas in less time before but maybe my technique was very bad then). The decorations on the kurigata came off: a drop of glue fixed it quickly, never hat problems after.
I've hit a basketball board above my head full force once but it doesn't even show on the blade...
I've bent the blade significantly once (turning while not completely drawn in Ganmen Ate). I placed the tip of the sword on the floor, pressed a little and it came back in place. This incident is now barely perceptible (you REALLY have to know) In a word: TOUGH. Totally recommend it after 5 years of use, I still love my iaito.

Great Iaito! February 9, 2013
Reviewer: Alexandre Cavalcanti from Rio de Janeiro, RJ Brazil  
Perfect! With a flawless finish and very well balanced, this iaito is the most cost-effective from Minosaka. And the shipping was so fast that the iaito arrived before the estimated shipping date. Thanks Tozando, I'm very satisfied.

A real jump of quality December 10, 2012
Reviewer: Davide Carboni from Rome, Lazio Italy  
i'm really happy about this purchase, my iaido jumped to another level. The sword is light but "present", really well balanced and the fittings are wonderful. Tsuka-ito is very tight and beautiful. the only "imperfection" is the hamon, (i choose midare) the pattern is too much regular at my eyes but nothing rilevant.
