Samurai Fastdraw Release your warrior spirit

The Nihonzashi Samurai Fastdraw timing system measures the time it takes to draw and cut with a sword. This was an essential skill for the samurai and was a mater of life or death. They would live or die by their skill and speed with a katana. Now you can find out just how fast you are! Practice by yourself or connect multiple timers together for head to head competition. It has practice and competition modes allowing flexible use from single person training to a full competition. Use this modern training tool to enhance your skills with an ancient weapon.

WARNING: The katana is not a toy and should not be used without training and proper supervision.
