    different form other martial art the blade based arts seem to be much smaller and less marketed than other arts.

    If you were to ask who was the top TKD people were, you'd likely get a series of champions and Masters. Equally with BJJ or Karate withing a different style or organisation people could point a few fingers at people who demonstrate high levels of different part of the art.

    So for those who know

    who would you have some as the top knife instructors right now?

    Top as for billing or being popular? And in what type blade?
    How about who is actually a top instructor as for skill vs being popular?

    Can't disagree with Leo and Phil. All Tuhons named by Leo, whether he recognizes them anymore or not, are at the top of the with a blade.
