Information
 
The dragonfly, or Tombo as it's called in Japanese, is also referred to as Katsumushi”(victory insect) since antiquity.

The dragonfly is said to only fly straight ahead. Unable to fly backwards, it thus became a symbol of the spirit to “never give up” and “never retreat”. During the Sengoku era, this quality was especially admired by warriors, and it got the name of “Katsumushi” as a symbol of sure victory. Nowadays, it’s liked for the same reasons by practitioners of Budo all over the world.

This Katsumushi Koshirae is inspired by the dragonfly which aggressively flies straight ahead. The Katsumushi Koshirae features the Tombo on both the Menuki and Fuchi/Kashira. The Tsuba is also inscribed with a dragonfly, making this sword itself, a symbol of victory. The blade is made with aluminum/zink alloy. The Katsumushi Koshirae are fashioned individually in Kyoto, which was the stage for many historic battles waged with the spirit of the Tombo. The Iaito also comes with a certificate with the “Kyoto Japan” Mark.

The "Kyoto Japan" Mark is a mark endorsed by the Kyoto Industry Development Consortium and it's given to companies that protects and develops the traditional craftsmanship in Kyoto, domestically and overseas.

As the Suzuku series of Iaito are made in Kyoto, Tozando has been certified to use the "Kyoto Japan" mark with the Suzaku series of Iaito.

This is my second Tozando iaito, and i am not dissapointed.
