Minosaka Standard Weight Iaito - Koto Koshirae

£663.00 ex VAT
£795.60 inc VAT

Themed with one of the rarer Japanese motif’s, the Koto Koshirae has a striking blackened steel Fuchi Kashira set with silver inlaid Yukibana (snowflakes). In Japan, heavy snows in winter were said to guarantee a source of water for growing rice later in the year, and so in the moment of a perfect winter, Yukibana are expressed as a powerful source of growth and potential.


A beautiful example of Minosaka’s standard/heavy weight range, these pieces, and especially their slightly pronounced Sori (curvature), are styled after ancient examples of swords found from the start of the Muromachi period, all the way through the famous Sengokujidai (period of the warring states) where the Daimyo of feudal Japan struggled against one another to win ultimate control of the nation.
