#167961 - 07/16/05 10:21 AM custom wakizashi?

I ordered a custom 1001 iaito from (aka and I expect its delivery fairly soon. At the time, I didn't think much of having a wakizashi for display.

Now, in reviewing the custom order websites, I have not seen any of the web houses offer custom wakizashi. It would be nice to find a zinc alloy full-nakago version that would be safe to swing, but that's not a requirement. A display version would be acceptable as long as I could have it crafted to roughly match the appearance of my katana iaito. Same coloring, same menuki, same tsuba, for example.

Anyone have a source for wakizashi?

Wakizashi iaito are not in very high demand, that's why hardly anyone carries them. If you contact Rick at Swordstore directly, he will be able to set you up with a custom wakizashi. It should not be much of a problem for him to match it up with the iaito that you ordered.
