Heir 's Duty

Maeda clan's warrior

Swordstore now offers Japanese art in both antique and high quality limited reproductions. We also have the ability to produce any size (within ratio) reprint that you desire whether your intention is to place in a frame, use as a banner or decorate an entire wall space – we can do it! About this scroll: This scroll was commissioned for a 1st son’s (Inuchiyo) first battle. It is unlikely that he would’ve been allowed anywhere near a battle but the number of heads taken is meant to exaggerate his prowess and as of yet untested courage. Original with kantei (documentation) available.

    Sturdy Thick Cotton Hakama

    Swordstore offers both white and cream. Make certain to color match!
  2. Hakama poly-tetro

    Hakama Easy Care Poly-Tetron

    Poly-tetron is much more carefree for daily use as cotton can easily loose the pleats.
  3. Hakama Custom Order Poly Tetron

    Hakama Custom Order Poly Tetron

    Like a men's suit, the quality is in the craftsmanship of the custom order.  Both garments are cut from the same bolt of cloth and amazingly the cost is not very different from the "non-custom" separates.  

    Did you know that a hakama made specifically for the art of Iaido are constructed differently than hakama for other forms of Budo such as Aikido?

    A:  Defined by the proportions between upper and lower body.  The front is made  about 3/4 inch shorter than the back so that you do not step onto your hakama when you do Enbu.

    B:  We custom tailor the back panel so that it fits to your body's contours taking hip size into consideration so that the pleats hang naturally straight. For full sized clients (waist in excess of 40)" we will take your hip measurement so that the seamstress can adjust the front and back panels accordingly.

    C:  Interior construction of the garment defines the look of how the Hakama drapes.  Movements should look monolithic like a solid square when movements and stances are performed.  This care is not taken in the construction of less expensive hakama or those designed for arts such as Aikido.  Movements therefore look more crisp and defined.

    Hakama Cotton Indigo Blue

    Smurfed! Good, you're paying for real indigo dye, no phoney chemical dyes are used on this classic garment. Bullet-proof these hakama wear like iron and become as soft as a baby's….
  5. Hakama Formal Stripe Custom

    Hakama Formal Stripe Custom

    Everyone should have a Sunday go-to-meetings hakama for formal occassions. Do remember that Kendo Renmei guidelines determine who can wear these garments at public events.
