The Iaito "Celestial Crane" is an exceptional iaito, the result of Murasame's reflection on the concept of an ultra-light practice sword for the Iaido.

The materials traditionally used in the manufacture of Iaitos (steel, alloy, aluminum) do not allow to drop below a certain minimum weight (approximately 650 g).

The only suitable metal is aluminum, but it is brittle, soft and not very rigid.

Carbon fiber has proven to be a good idea because it combines many qualities: strength, rigidity and above all, very low weight. In addition, its color and texture add an extraordinary visual to this blade.
To give life to this Iaito Murasame used a very high quality carbon, the one used on the Airbus A 380.

- The company ReUse Composite Innovation was responsible for the realization of the carbon plate, the cutting of the blade and the realization of the groove.
- The grinding was entrusted to Tom Fleury Knives.
- All the clothing part (Tsuba, Fuchi, Kashira, Seppa, Habaki and Menuki) is the work of Curiositas Technologies.
- The Japanese Saber Workshop did the braiding work of the Tsuka, the fitting of the fittings, the tuning and the final tuning of the Iaito.
The Iaito "Celestial Crane" was presented for the first time at the Mondial Coutellia show in Thiers in May 2018.

It weighs 550 g, it is strong, lively and extremely manoeuvrable.
It can be further reduced as needed and down to around 420 g! A record!
