Tozando’s custom made Suzaku Iaito—sword for Iaido—looks, feels, and weighs the same as a live blade (Shinken). A big feature of our Suzaku blades is that they are not made from the usual sand casting method used for producing most imitation swords. Instead, we adopted a special reinforced GT metal blade made through highly precise gravity casting. The Suzaku Custom-made Iaito is completely made in Kyoto and has been refined to be ideal for use in Iaido.
Tozando's Custom Iaito are made exclusively for you at the special Iaito workshop with the finest material and the best craftsmanship available today. This gives the special Iaito great durability and an air of authenticity. Perfectly weighted and perfectly balanced, Tozando Custom Iaito have the feel of shinken. Each one of our Iaito are constructed by master craftsmen with 10 years of sword making experience or longer. This Custom-made Iaito is made by the craftsmen in our second workshop in Gifu prefecture.
