We are pleased to introduce to you the new Tozando semi-custom Iaito sword, "Tenryu"!

Tenryu literally means a dragon in the sky, and we define this sword as an advanced model of Toryumon series Iaito.

Like our Suzaku Custom Iaito and Custom Workshop Iaito, you may choose the different blade type; standard, extra-light and extra-wide which allows you to find the best suitable sword for your die-hard Iai practice.

Tenryu sword also offers you the semi-customization for the fittings. You have two choices for Fuchi/Kashira; a set of Ajiro (wickerwork) pattern and Ume(a plum tree) Fuchi/Kashira with a variety of Menuki now available.

You then can choose your Tsuba from a variety of designs.

Saya lacquer is available in Kuroro, Kuroishime or Chaishime.

A sand-casted, a bubble-free zinc/aluminum alloy blade is available up to 2.60 shaku. You can chose between Hyoujun (normal, up to 2.45 shaku), Keiryo Toshin (extra-light, up to 2.45 shaku) or Habahiro (extra-wide) blade types. For a 2.45 shaku blade, Hyoujou is about 835g, Keiryo Toshin 785g and Habahiro 920g for the Iaito without saya (indicative, final weight depends on the choice of fittings).

Please note that, because we would like to keep this price affordable, Tenryu offers a cotton Sageo and Tsuka wrapping over white or black stingray skin.

If you are no longer the entry level practitioner who is looking at the next phase, this Tenryu will be the best partner you work with.
So make your move now for the graceful strength with Tenryu!

Worse than expected August 1, 2019
Reviewer: Mikael from Sweden  
I ordered my iaito (extra wide blade, 2.60 shaku long, 9 sun tsuka) in the beginning of January and received it in the end of March. About twice the expected delivery time!

The sword looked great on arrival. The balance point is further from the tsuka than on my old iaito, but that I could get used to. However, after only five practices (ZNKR Iai) the tsuka broke!

I brought it to a local sword salesman who took the tsuka off, way too easily for an iaito. When he removed it the fuchi just fell off, meaning it did not help at all with aiding the strength of the core.

I contacted Tozando with these findings and they asked me to send it back. This would cost, according to an online calculation at UPS, around $200 US = about half the cost of the entire sword. After some arguing back and forth, they agreed to cover some of the shipping cost, but not nearly all of it…

If this is the quality that "speaks for itself", I can't recommend this sword, look for something better instead.

Better than expected July 19, 2019
Reviewer: Norbert Wuesthoff from Duesseldorf, NRW Germany  
I was happy and satisfied when my new Iaito arrived last Friday, and had my first class in the evening with it. It looks elegant and well crafted. Sensei and Senpai/Kohai confirmed it's been a good selection and choice (I made with their advice).
However, for the next Iaito I'd rather choose the blade in 'thick' version, because this would meet my handling expectations more. For the time being, I will need to collect experience and skill swith this Iaito.
I will receommend Tozando as a supplier when being asked.
Ganabtte kudasai!

New custom blade. June 3, 2019
Reviewer: Eric Ross from Clarkston, Michigan United States  
I am very satisfied with the level of care that was taken in preparing and delivery of my new sword. This is the second sword I have ordered from Tozando. They have once again exceeded my expectations both in quality and craftsmanship.
