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.

Very much a novice here. Studying hard and learning every day. Thanks for forums like this where we can come for info and help.

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 ;-)
