As a student of iai and aiki I am often amused at the 'reverance' placed on a bit of wood by aikidoists with no formal training with a skinken or iaito.
My firm opinion on this and similar issues is that good manners are never a mistake. If I'm going to err, I hope it will be on the side of being overly-polite.

If this 'amuses' you, I'm glad. It's better than being thought of as clueless or rude.
