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.

Hi Rick. I received package -- all in good order. Thank you so much for the extras! Not necessary but much appreciated. Everyone in my Dojo really enjoyed new Sageo and the edosashi is a perfect fit. I really like the other Sageo I ordered as well and will probably be putting another order in the new year. best to you and Yuri during this holiday season. Thank you again! Sean

Thanks for the new iaito! We practiced seitei tonight and it was amazing how perfectly I executed each one with the new sword. OK, well that may be a BIT of an exaggeration but it is still an amazing sword that I'm pleased to own. Thanks again! Marcus

Rick, She arrived yesterday, and she's a beauty! And thank you for the sword bag that you included, it is very nice. I am looking forward to many hours and years of training with my new blade. She'll be accompanying me back to Japan next month in fact. I very much appreciate your quick responses and communication throughout the process. And am just happy to start training with my new sword. Much thanks, Chris

Hi Rick! I just received the package and I have to say, the sword looks great. I think we're all good here. Thank you so much, this has been a learning experience and the next time I purchase, it will certainly be from swordstore. I might require less hand holding then, as well! Have a great week sir. With Deep Gratitude, Eric

Rick, I can’t thank you enough for this beautiful sword. I am absolutely blown away by how phenomenal it feels to cut with this, and the attention to detail, the extra touches...I can’t thank you enough. I am definitely going to send students over to you when it is time for them to get real steel for practice. Thanks again, and I wish you the best in 2018!

Hello Polland Sensei, I have been practicing with my new sword for several weeks now, and I am delighted. Practice feels more purposeful knowing that the weapon is correct;y sized and will teach me properly. As to its appearance, all I can say is that it's absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for all of the guidance that you provided, as well as for the black same and what XXX Sensei believes to be upgraded fittings around the tsuba. I look forward to developing with it! All the best, Brian

Rick, Just wanted to let you know that I'll be recommending your equipment to my students (as I've been doing for years, but your wood weapons are too sweet for words). The quality is undeniable and the feel is really nice. Add the history onto that and we have a winner! Ed
