The Skyjiro Tenku Iaito sword is just as real as all of our dojo quality cutting swords but without the full cutting edge. This katana is fully functional and hand-made from high carbon steel! This sword is perfect for the martial art Iaito as well as a safer practice katana for kata and demonstration. This sword is forged to the same authentic weight and shape as your cutters and complete with the same high-quality finish and fittings! Please note that although this Iaito is not sharpened, the blade geometry is still that of a cutting sword and does not have blunted edges.
