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.

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

I want to thank you for the excellent sword. The more I use it the more I appreciate the craftsmanship and amazing details. Although I purchased this sword just as a replacement for my old practice sword I will treasure this gem for life. I will certainly recommend the SwordStore to any who are looking for a sword and will definitely look to SwordStore when it's time to upgrade to shinken. Best wishes to you and SwordStore! Phil
