I have a few swords, most of them by gifts or by lucky find.

I want to find swords that my students can use for iaito and tameshigiri.

I know there is many more knowledgeable people out there.

I've looked at:

Paul Chen
Nosyuiaido
AOI
Bugei
and a few others.

We are not looking to invest in shinken at the moment, but need fully functional blades that won't "go to hell" after a few practices. Also, the blades need to be able to endure "beginners".
I have some tall people too. So, I need some longer blades.

If you are a sword practicioner and have an opinion or have had good experiences with a certain make and type please let me know.

Domo Arigato!
