SHOURYU is our deluxe practical Iaito that is orthodox and conservative in design, making it perfect for those looking for a simplistic piece, suited for regular practice, as well as those starting out in Iaito.
The beautiful fittings feature a dragon design, inspiring the name SHOURYU - meaning 'rising dragon', as well as a 'Tonbo' themed Menuki. 'Tonbo', the Japanese Dragonfly, has long been an important symbol of the Samurai, and were frequently used in days of old to decorated warriors' belongings.
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.
