This extra heavy version of Dotanuki is for those who are seeking the aesthetic Iaito with the weight and balance like Shinsakuto or huge Bakumatsu style piece. The blade used for this Dotanuki Extra Heavy version is the heaviest and probably the thickest among all other Iaito products available from Tozando. A 2.5 Shaku Iaito will weigh approx. 1200 grams, making it 20% heavier than our Habahiro models.

Copper Fuchi/Kashira, which is beautifully finished in antique style, features whirlpool theme. The reinforced zinc/aluminum alloy* blade is available up to 2.60 Shaku. Made in Japan.

5 of 5 Suburito of the Iaito world August 2, 2014
Reviewer: Andy Duong from Mississauga, Ontario Canada  
This iaito is absolutely superb. The fit and finish of the sword is very good, and very tight where it needs to be, especially the tsuka and tsuba.

The sword itself is quite heavy for an iaito, but still quite balanced and very manageable, making for very good strength training in addition to cutting form. Additionally, despite being a bit "deeper", the tachikaze is still very clear and pronounced.

The metal kurikata was a very well received bonus, and the rest of the fittings are wonderful as well.

I was going to order a Tozando Habahiro model at first, but this Dotanuki is an absolute pleasure to use, and I would recommend this to anybody who would like a sword much more substantial than a regular size/weight iaito, or even a Habahiro model.

As a side note, the free shipping and financing plan were incredibly useful, as I am a college student.
