Iaido (居合道 Iaidō), abbreviated with iai (居合), is a modern Japanese martial art/sport. Iaido is associated with the smooth, controlled movements of drawing the sword from its scabbard, striking or cutting an opponent, removing blood from the blade, and then replacing the sword in the scabbard. While new practitioners of iaido may start learning with a wooden sword (bokken) depending on the teaching style of a particular instructor, most of the practitioners use the blunt edged sword, called iaitō. Few, more experienced, iaido practitioners use a sharp edged sword (shinken).
Shinken of Sword Iaido swords are all made of high carbon steel, the whole blades are all heat treated and oil quenched. the blades are all Full Tang and secured by two bamboo mekugi. If you are Iaido practitioner, Shinken of Sword iaido swords are your best choice.
