    Iaido Training: iaito vs. boken

    :smiles: Such will be very useful. My sensei was a carpenter in his working years and made a wooden daisho for very similar purposes :nods:. One thing to note, of course, is that unless they are weighted, you will notice a difference in weight and balance but it shouldn't be enough to be a...

    I'm Sure I've Linked This Before ...

    Absolutely so :nods firmly:. A number of players like the 'brighter' sound of the Strat or the mellower sound of a Les Paul but I think the SG is the best 'dirty' blues instrument - for me at least. I wanted one for years once I'd played enough to have an idea of what I liked. That was...

    Aye, Carol :D. As Monadnock is for you, my dear friend, so is the woodland for me :). OTH? Your mailbox is full, good sir - my reply to your kindhearted PM vanished into the board software with a gentle puff of unsmoke as it bounced :). I thank you greatly for your concern :bows:.
