The minute a person calls themselves an "Expert" then there would be nothing more to learn.
And since study of Nihonto and related could take several lifetimes, I think we would all fall under the "beginner" category somewhat. But I prefer "Novice".

Of course this is all IMO and we all know what opinions are worth. :)

I am just an amateur, with some bits and odds of basic knowledge. Not strictly a novice as I have handled quite a lot of swords.

On this field we are always beginners, the knowledge is just too vast.
I have started studying the nihonto just 5 years ago, and I still feel pretty much embarrassed to express my opinions on topics requesting kantei for kodogu... So don't feel shy, we all start somewhere ;-)
