Shura katana

QUESTION: I have a few questions about the Shura katana. Is the katana good for iaido if I get it on Bo/HI Is the sword razor sharp? Also If its not good for iaido is there any other cheness sword you recomend the sword for iaido or is there any other cheness sword you recomend?

ANSWER: Hi Adrian,

Actually, the Shura is discontinued - but the Tenchi Katana (Reviewed here) uses exactly the same blade. And both are frequently purchased by, and used in, dojo.

Here's an example of one of the discontinued Shura in a dojo setting as an example.

Hope this helps.
