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.

Rick, I hope all is going well with the new family addition! I got back to XX this weekend and finally got to take a look at the sword. VERY nice- your guess on the sageo is spot on, the mid blue offsets the black very nicely. I also appreciate the beautiful sword bag, it’s my wife’s favorite part. While I do wonder what the sword would have looked like with the red/brown ito and the wine sageo, I am very pleased with what we ended up with. The overall length on this thing is amazing. Thank you again for all your help and patience with this order, and I hope to do business with you in the future! Sincerely, Michael

Hello Rick, I just want to send an email and thank you for the wonderful iaito and nice gifts. After meticulously opening the package, I immediately took it outside and I spent over an hour practicing strikes. I absolutely love the look, balance and feel of the iaito. Thank you so much for your wonderful service, advice, and support. I can tell this is going to help my Kendo and Iaito great deal. Thank you, Kevin

Hello Rick, Just a short email to say I did receive my Tsuka and all is well. I did practice at our last keiko with it and my blade from Swordstore. amazing, was looking to retrieve the feeling of such a balanced sword and the edge as well is bi sharped and cut in the air such easily. Have a good weekend!

Hi Rick, Been a few weeks now and I have not had a chance to properly train with my new iaito, but I wanted to send you a quick note anyway. The sword is absolutely fantastic. This is my first iaito, having borrowed others' occasionally over the years, and this one just exudes quality. Thanks so much for your quick, personal customer service, and for offering such a great product at a good price. I'll recommend you whenever I can. Jeff

Hi Rick, I just wanted to let you know that my new sword arrive and that I had a chance to practice with it. It is very nice. The balance point is about one each closer to the stuba and it makes a big difference. Thanks for you help. Dom
