A mainstay of the Nine Circles range, the Higo Koshirae has been one of our most popular Iaito over the last 10 years. This new customised version takes this highly dependable sword to a new level with a myriad of options to make it truly your own.
Characterised by the rounded steel Kashira, a hallmark of the Higo style, the hilt fittings have a lightly blackened finish, inlaid with a gold coloured frond detail. The Higo Koshirae model also features a slim Tsuka profile, especially suited for smaller hands.
Fully customisable from top to bottom, this is one of the most versatile models to use as the base for your made-to-measure Iaito.
