Koshi sori makes for better, more leveraged cutting, but more difficult drawing.
Torii sori (3/4" to 1") makes for easier drawing.

Hello,

koshi sori is more tyipical for Tachi, and he was carried with blade down, so drawing was different, but you have good point about cutting

Hello Petar,
The photo was taken at the 2008 10th international Aikido congress, where there was also an exhibition in Tanabe with relics and photo's of O Sensei's life. Most of what was shown came from the Kumano Juku Dojo. This bokken was unusual big and heavy, more like a suburito.

What is the specific detail that you are looking for?

Tom
Hi Tom,

according this pic, which David have in his collection HERE
and if is really same bokken then it look almost like suburito, so it seams that I need to make another one : )

Hello Petar, hope you are well.

Here is a photo of a weapons rack in Iwama, it is from "Traditional Aikido Vol. 4" by Saito Morihiro Sensei which was published in October 1974. The original is split over two pages and I "glued" them together.

Hope this helps.
Hello David,

if is not problem for you to send me this pic, in bigger resolution, on my mail.

thanks,
Petar
