Product Description



The All Japan DOTANUKI KOSHIRAE is produced to match the swords made by the Dotanuki school of sword smiths, favored by famous Edo Daimyou - Kato Kiyomasa.

Kato Kiyomasa was the master of Kumamoto Castle, and was famed, and feared, for both his skill and brutality in battle. He favored the heavy Dotanuki style swords, as it was said they could cleave an enemy in two with a single stroke.

Both Kato Kiyomasa, and the Dotanuki style are important aspects of Japanese Samurai culture, that specifically relate to Kumamoto prefecture, the home of All Japan Budogu, and we are proud to be able to offer this beautiful representation of local Kumamoto culture.

Makes for a beautiful display piece, as well as a dignified practice sword.

Made using a lightweight Zinc/Aluminium Alloy blade, this sword is compliant with Japanese laws relating to imitation swords. Steel swords, with the exception of genuine Japanese made, registered Shinken, are not allowed to be brought to Japan for training purposes. As this sword is made using modern Zinc/Aluminium alloy, it is NOT affected by this restriction and can be brought to and from Japan freely.

Made to order - Usually ships in 3-4 weeks.


Important : All Japan Budogu's Iaito and Japanese swords are designed for non-contact, solo practice only. Please do not use them for cutting or paired exercises. Doing so may both damage the blade and/or cause serious injury. THIS SWORD CANNOT BE SHARPENED. All Japan Budogu accepts NO RESPONSIBILITY for any damage and/or injuries caused through misuse of this product.

Please be advised that ownership of Japanese swords is restricted by the governments of some countries and/or regions. Please be sure that your purchase complies with the laws of the delivery destination, and that you have relevant permission to own and/or import an Iaito BEFORE placing your order. Any swords returned to us due to failure to comply with local regulations, laws or for otherwise similar reasons will be refunded MINUS all imposed shipping costs, plus a restocking fee of 60% of the Iaito's total purchase price.

  1. Great Iaito for the money 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 18th 2014

    This is a great iaito. Well put together and great attention to detail. The balance and weight is just right. If you want to build up your strength this is the iaito for you! The pictures on website don't do it justice.
