I have a wonderful iaito for sale, it is a Nosyuiaido, 2002 iaito, that was crafted in 1999. Blade is 29.5 inches tsuka is 11.75 inches. Eggplant silk ito, fuchi kashira is higo wave in copper. Black stone saya, mustard sageo. Copper seppa and a brass habaki. The habaki shows some wear, but fits perfect. The tsuka has 2 mekugi, which was a custom request of mine. The tsuba is yagyu in iron, and the menuki is a man in a boat, which is in copper. This is an iaito, so it has an aluminum blade, this is not a steel iaito. The hamon is notare and there is a bo-hi. This is a beautiful iaito, and I hate to let it go. Price is $400 with $15 to ship. This iaito would cost around $750 to be made. Wonderful deal for a wonderful iaito. Email caseybartley@hotmail.com for serious inquiries.

Thanks for your interest,

Saya is a nice black stone, and I must say that the saya is excellently fit to the sword.
