Tozando is proud to present a new series of iaito specifically made for Mikami Yasuo's latest film Musashi. This series of iaito are exact replicas of the swords used by the principle characters in the film. Sawamura Daigaku was a prominent retainer of the Hosokawa Clan, his musha shugyo would first bring him into contact with the infamous Sasaki Kojiro and then eventually Miyamoto Musashi.

This koshirae is the katana used by Sawamura Daigaku in the film. However this is not a prop, it has been made to be used as a true iaito. The blade is made from a reinforced zinc and aluminium alloy whilst the tsuka, tsukamaki, saya and metal fittings have all been made in the traditional manner. Like all our iaito, this an authentic piece of Japanese craftsmanship that is meant to be used in Iaido training.

The film Musashi is an ambitious piece directed by Mikami Yasuo (he also directed Shundou in 2013). Mikami strives to capture true authenticity in his works and consequently films entirely on location. This commitment to a genuine atmosphere led the director to choose Tozando to develop and provide the swords for the film.

Made to exacting specifications and featuring unique fittings and designs; this iaito is not only a splendid example of craftsmanship, but also wonderully balanced and prepared for training.

Like all our iaito, it is shipped internationally for free and comes under our 1-year warranty for a tsuka-maki re-wrap. The specifications are as listed below.
