So, I practice Iaido, the japanese 'Way of drawing (the sword)', and after what probably has been 5 months, I get to buy an iaito (dull katana sword). There's no much choice between iaito's , except for the guard, I just can't pick what guard looks best! Can you guys give me an opinion of sorts?

I can totally see what you mean...

Personally, I like two of the guards. The ones on either end of the second row are both cool. I favor the one on left because of its simplicity - in my opinion, it conveys a sense of subtle power. However, the cut-from-the-side style on the right side is rather unique among the group.

But if I had to choose - I'd go with the left.

I'm liking the whole second row and the top left one.. But I'd go with your pick Ding, if I had to pick. It's simple, yet good, since all people in my group have these awesome guards with cranes and fishes and stuff. Though, wouldn't the middle one on the second row be worth it?
