Hi Rick. I hope this finds you and family well. The Iaito is amazing!! I took several thorough examinations and am just amazed at the workmanship and quality of sword and especially Tsuka and wrap. It is perfectly balanced and great geometry. The Tsuba is deff. the highlight. Thank you for the extras as well! I have organized a very nice presentation next week and am sure it will be well received. You will most likely get a few other orders from students once they see it in person. Well done! Thank you!!! Best, Sean
Piece of Art
I received your shipment this morning! Thank you for making this possible. This Iaito is one very beautiful piece of art and surely one of the things that are worth waiting for! Also thank you very much for goodies und the upgrade, that would not have been necessary, but I am honored by your generosity. You might be hearing from me again another time if one day I am in need of another Iaito. So long, best regards Henning
Hi Yuri, The sageo finally had arrived today, safe and secured. It is really a beautiful piece. Thank You very much !

Very useful information. Thank You again, I wish You good health and prosperous business, Tamas / Hungary

Hi Rick, she has arrived and I am enchanted! I had to get her at Customs with some bureaucracy and Mehrwertsteuer - now I am practicing. Regards Klaus
Hi Rick, I am very pleased with my new custom iaito! Rick and Yuri went above and beyond to make sure I was completely satisfied. They through in a lot of "extras" and the look and feel of the sword is truly awesome. Thank you so much. I am a customer for life.
