Frankly the work in polishing Japanese style swords has helped me also realize the fact that *nothing* is perfect. Nothing. Well, almost nothing -- I saw a modern piece by Ono Yoshimitsu and spent an hour by myself with good lighting and my jeweler's magnifiers and I couldn't find a freaking mistake anywhere in the blade, not by the smith and not by the polisher (Fujishiro would be my guess on the polisher). Damn. That bugged me.
Off topic perhaps, but I was fortunate enough to be introduced by Inaba Minoru sensei in March to Miyairi Norihiro, Nagano prefecture Living Treasure and (like Ono Yoshimitsu) Mukansa (above competition) swordsmith. Our group was shown by him both how to appreciate swords and he also demonstrated to us a couple of "folds" in his forge. Absolutely fascinating.

One question for those out there who know more about Tissier Sensei than I: could you please explain about the special form of bow that he does? I am not familiar with this form.
I believe that this is solely due to injury to his knee. Unfortunate, but he carries on. Other sensei perform only standing bows for similar reasons.

Thank you for explaining the situation for me. I am glad to see that Tissier Sensei is still training, even with the injured knee. I have great respect for him as a fine person as well as a great aikido Sensei.

In Aiki,
Ethan
