    New Hand Forge Folded Swordstore Batto Steel Iaito...

    PICS BELOW

    Blade including habaki: 28" 27" without habaki
    Tsuka: 11.5"
    Thickness at habaki: About 5/16" and tapers nicely

    This is a new and unused custom Dragon theme steel iaito from Swordstore.com. It is hand forged folded, and has a true hamon. Don't let the words "steel iaito" throw you off. Swordstore makes these swords for the serious martial artist who plans on cutting with it. If you're a fan of substantial niku...it has allot of niku, but is well balanced. I'd imagine it has good power through the cut without being too heavy due to the shorter blade length. The blade has a beautiful gunome well defined hamon and a well definded kissaki and ji. It really does have a nice polish.

    The habaki is silver colored. The brown stone saya has a great lacquer job. The blade has a slight rattle in the saya, and the kashira has a little play in it. The habaki fits nice and snug in the saya. It won't fall out if you hold it unspde down. The tsuki ito is nice and tight with the dragon menuki set in traditional placement. It feels great in the hands, and even though it has substantial niku the shorter blade and longer tsuka make for a well balanced sword. The sword comes with a handmade dark blue silk sageo along witht e original brown silk one. It also comes with an uchiko ball and clove oil.A regular dojo bag included, and a fancy silk bag as well.

    I payed $1600 for it and am selling it for $1000 plus paypal fees.

    Again, this is a sword made to cut and it looks great! Hurry and grab this deal before someone else does!
