Miyamoto Musashi is probably the one of the best known Japanese Ronin not only as the undefeated swordman but also as the author of 'The Book of Five Rings'. He also found his own school named Niten Ichi Ryu and is today considered the master swordman called Kensei and his life is often adopted for a novel, a theater play, a film, and a comic book.

This special edition of Miyamoto Musashi's Kaneshige Koshirae features the black leather Gangimaki style wrapping known as Musashimaki wrapping and Namako Tsuba designed by Miyamoto Musashi himself. The unique Shu Urumi lacquered Saya adds more luxurious and dignified appearance.

  • Approximately 820 gram without the Saya(for 2.45 Shaku)
  • Black leather Tsuka Gangimaki(Musashimaki) wrapping over blackened stingray skin

Very Nice January 1, 2018
Reviewer: Kevin Turner from Kamloops, British Columbia Canada  
I am very pleased with this purchase.  I have been training in iaido for 4 years and tried many swords .  I had decided I wanted one with leather although no one had one like that.  I took the chance and the tsuka is awesome.  Lovely balance, and it sings beautifully.

Training with beautiful things August 1, 2017
Reviewer: Jennifer G. from Wellington, New Zealand  
I'm very pleased with this iaito. I don't know how much of my enjoyment is from having an iaito that fits me and how much is because it's this particular iaito. :)

It seems well-made and secure. Its balance is an incentive to do better. The leather gangi-maki wrapping is satisyingly grippy. The final few millimetres of the habaki are currently very stiff in the saya, which I'm told is typical and will ease over time.

It's also gorgeous, with subtle textures, curves and shading. The habaki is blackened brass (not shown in the photos). My saya, in my current winter light, seems darker than in the images - a deep wine colour that at a distant first glance might seem black with reflections, but resolves to a rich warm shade with the red ground glowing beneath the dark outer lacquer. I like it. In all other ways, the pictures are exactly what I got. The bee menuki is a gaudy flash of gold on an otherwise restrained-but-confident iaito. It makes me smile.
