First of all I would like to thank Andy and AllJapan for absolutely amazing service beyond the call. I had tons of annoying questions and they always answered in a timely fashion.
On to the actual sword. For reference, I have been practicing Iaido for 3 years and will be passing my first dan this spring. Over the past three years I have used a Tozando custom made, but ended up not being entirely satisfied especially with the quality of the fittings which is why I ordered the Minosaka prestige iaito.
I have to say that this sword is absolutely gorgeous and breathes quality craftsmanship. More importantly, it feels absolutely perfect in my hands and almost seems to have a soul of its own. I do not think I could have found a better balanced iaito. Thank you All Japan!
