Re: Marking your weapons

Re: Marking your weapons

If you wrote "ーテラ", you wrote gibberish. You started the word with a long vowel mark which must follow a vowel. If you meant for it to be read right to left, you wrote "Rataa".

Re: Marking your weapons

A while back a student commented that I should mark one of my bokken. It didn't have anything on it and he said someone might get confused. That night I marked my bokken on the ura on the tsuka.

"Mine"

Works just fine...

Since we are nit-picking テ is "Te". Tara would be タラ.

Nice find.

Maybe I should sign my next bokken with:
"Not yours",
just in case with would ever met.
