No problems. I have there lowest model and it's just fine. Good balance and very solid. They sent exactly what I ordered in the time frame they stated. I'd order from them again in the future.

My only problem is that I ordered a blade which is a bit to short - but that was my fault. Otherwise I'm rather pleased with my iaito, and the service was impecable. They fitted another tsuba than the one I ordered, but send me a new one with no extra charge.

I have one of Tozando's Higo Koshirae, which is a very basic no-frills Iaito & I am very pleased with the balance & quality.


http://www.nosyuiaido.com - Swordstore also sells some excellent iaito that can be fully customized. They even offer shinken & steel iaito that can be used for tameshigiri practice.
