I bet the extreme pitch of your whining is making all the dogs in your neighborhood bark. The only thing that I profess to be an expert at is designing electronic systems. Everything else I am only a dabbler. So, tell us exactly how you would go about assessing that a person professing to make Japanese style sword blades is a "local expert" rather than a "local dumbass"? How would you determine the difference, given that you have no clue what would constitute a proper Japanese style sword blade? This being the case, how is it that you are expecting others to just somehow "know" this information? Why does that seem reasonable to you?
