It’s well known that buffalo horn is traditionally used for the reinforcement of the Koiguchi and the Kojiri of traditionally made Japanese swords.
However, in most cases, Iaito does not feature such luxury, for one, Iaito are prone to more damage due to the nature of their users, while Shinken practitioners are a lot more careful with their equipment.
Another reason is of course because Buffalo Horn is an expensive upgrade for a standard Iaito, which most practitioners do not need or want.
But as of late, we have noticed that there is a increasing demand for Buffalo Horn to be used with our Iaito, we take this as a compliment, as our users expect only the best when they buy a custom-made Iaito from us. This is why we have now added new options to choose Buffalo horn for the Koiguchi and the Kojiri on our Custom-made Iaito to fulfill your requests.
To make it even better, we will offer a 10% discount on the Tozando Custom-made Iaito until the 27th of October, with this you can upgrade your Iaito with buffalo horn reinforcements almost without any extra costs!
So go and check it out!
