5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best book on this subject you can buy., 7 Jan. 2000
This book taught me almost everything I wanted to know about Japanese sword making. A well researched, written and presented book. Excellent for the beginner and collector alike. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything the beginner needs, 7 Jan. 2000
With information on many, many techniques, kata forms, armour wearing and footwork and more, this book is ESSENTIAL for the beginner! I learned a lot, and so will YOU. It cannot take the place of a proper instructor, but it holds most of the knowledge of one. Only one small complaint....some information on how armour and shinai are made wouldn't have gone amiss, just out of interest. Nevertheless, if you are just starting or EVEN IF YOU HAVE BEEN DOING KENDO FOR QUITE A WHILE, BUY IT!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners, 7 Jan. 2000
On the whole, a very good book, but lacking detail in some places, and some small sections have lost their accuracy due to the book being written in 1958! Top marks for the name of smith/inscription guide.
