The iaito collection made by the Kaneie forge are among the best unsharpened training swords in the world. Rigid swords with a balance which definitely can be compared to a hardened steel shinken.
The commonly used zinc aluminum alloy often feels too flexible and wobbly so a special stainless steel alloy has been developed for these swords. This new steel is hardened but much less brittle as the (in)famous 440 stainless knife steel. An advantage of this new material is that only minimal maintenance is required.
The suberb balance, excellent mounting quality and traditioneel look and feel make the Kaneie iaito collection the perfect choice for the beginning or advanced student.
