The DOTANUKI KOSHIRAE is produced to match the swords made by the Dotanuki school of sword smiths, favored by famous Edo Daimyou - Kato Kiyomasa. 

Kato Kiyomasa was the master of Kumamoto Castle, and was famed, and feared, for both his skill and brutality in battle. He favored the heavy Dotanuki style swords, as it was said they could cleave an enemy in two with a single stroke.

Both Kato Kiyomasa, and the Dotanuki style are important aspects of Japanese Samurai culture, that specifically relate to Kumamoto prefecture, the home of All Japan Budogu, and we are proud to be able to offer this beautiful representation of local Kumamoto culture.

Like every Iaito produced by Minosaka, this Iaito has been crafted in Gifu.
