    Does anyone know what will happen to the staffs come January 2014? Will they go unemployed or will they be employed by the Worcester?
  2. Hanwei Tiger, Hanwei Practical Katana & Practical Iaito, Munetoshi Matsu

    I have the following for sale.

    I guess the blade was not clay coated then quenched like normal katana; but rather a high tech differentially heat treatment method. If that the case, why not just release the composition of the...

    I also second the opinion that bad habit is very difficult to unlearn. I also will say that you cannot learn from video and book. There is no way for you to know when you made a mistake (more...

    May I ask your reason? This is because if your only objection is the killing of living things, buffalo (or bull horn) is acceptable. This because harvest of buffalo horns are from buffalo that died...

    Barrett Hiebert,

    I am curious. Why is the insistence on the "custom" trainers when there are production trainers out there of high quality? Are Albion Maestro Line swords insufficiently...

    Just curious. Why would that be an issue. As fas as I understand, it is one of the historical correct types of bo-hi. In fact, I wish more production companies make them.

    Another question, does...

    In all honesty I really don't care who is right or wrong in that matter. It is between the two parties and I am not interested in their past, present, or future disputes. I am just a consumer. And...

    I would greatly appreciate if you continue to give us your assessment of the iaito in the future, after using it for a while. Assessment after a few months of continuous use is...

    I apologized again for inappropriate posting of the subject. But from now on, I will just go to our fellow forumite, John Smith or Dan Keffeler, if I want a custom blade. With John, I even had a...

    I am not interested in training in a different Iai style via video. It is unsafe for someone outside of that specific Ryu to immitate.

    I am simply interested in generic strength training that is...
