Youre very welcome and Im glad that you liked it. I was lucky to find someone like Paul at Cheness who would take a risk on a niche market...the universe provides when we are open to it :)
The Japanese sword has been a focus of mine for many years. I am both a collector of antique nihonto and a long time practicioner. My current sword affiliation is with Ishi Yama Ryu but I have ties to various ryu. If anyone ever has any questions about nihonto please feel free to ask me and I will endeavor to answer as best I can.
This is not a critique but an observation but I have noticed in many ninpo dojo that, as the sword is only one of many weapons, that the knowledge base is not as high as in sword focused dojo. I was allowed great latitude at Bujinkan LA to work with students on fundamentals such as tenouchi and hasuji and safe noto and nuketsuki. Often times I seen the sword in ninpo dojos being handled sans the respect and care it is given in a sword dojo. The problem is that this can lead to bad habits and safeness issues. I believe in training and having fun but the habits you develop with a bokken or mogitoh when translated to a shinken can make all teh difference for you and your training partners.
This seems like a great place to be :)
