I am certainly no expert, in fact I believe Paul was to deliver this talk before he left for London. It will be a basic introduction to nihonto but we do expect to illustrate our talk with several examples of Juyo quality for hands on study.

If you plan on being in "The City" next weekend we would love to see you,

Sometimes I wish we had a 'Like' button on the forums too.

The group was small just twenty people, all however turned out to have a keen interest.

We presented our subject in four sections of approximately 45 minutes each:

1. The History
2. The Construction
3. The Study
4. The Fittings

There was a break for lunch in the middle of the day and I am happy to say that folks were attentive and inquisitive throughout.

On the table were:

Enomoto Sadayoshi
8 dai Tadayoshi
Inoue Shinkai - Wakizashi
Inoue Shinkai - Katana
Harima Daijo Shigetaka - Wakizashi
Bizen Iesuke - Katana
Bizen Kanemitsu - Tachi
Bizen Kagemitsu - Tachi
Bizen Nagamitsu - Tachi

There was also a selection of fine koshirae and fittings including some Ko-Goto Futokoro-mono and a singular namako tsuba by Miyamoto Musashi. Some pictures below...
