Thread: I really like my koshirae...

    Default I really like my koshirae...

    I really like my koshirae on my tozando iaito. I want to get a cutting blade, though. Is it viable to get a cutting blade that will fit my tozando tsuka?

    Thank you

    Assuming you're not willing to take the opportunity to try something different, can't you buy the koshirae from Tozando, and have the new blade mounted with those items? It seems to me to be a more attractive option than making your iaito useless.

    But to your original question, you may find that a random blade may fit your tsuka, but it will most likely not fit well, and it will almost certainly not fit perfect. As this will be a live blade capable of causing injury, are you willing to take the chance?

    Hi, Robert,

    You don't give your grade but it's not a very good idea to work with a cutting blade for iaido kata if you are under nidan or sandan.

    So if it is for tameshigiri you will still need your iaito for kata and grade tests.

    Not bad ever to have two different koshirae for your iaito and your liveblade. Then you'll have two koshirae you like !

    Tozando do offer Shinken - I think it is a sister company.

    I too like my Iaito - I would like a "Matched Pair " eventually

    Hi Kriss,

    Can only assume from that response is that Miller is either on drugs or a child, either way, its not worth thinking about.

    Cheers

    Hi Jason,

    You are right. Sorry if he cuts himself instead of his ego as he should in iaido practice.

    Regards.

    Hi Christian,

    Yup, me thinks the karma credit plan will catch up at some stage.

    Cheers
