Personally, Graham, I'd stay away from metal. I have consistently been told that with metal you risk enlarging the mekugi-ana (the hole in the tang) which doesn't lead to anything good. It also can lead to bloody palms, which is just plain uncivilized for embu, or practice.

IMO, Richard pretty much said it all for bamboo.
