    Indeed - I know of a few people who use them to justify their lineage which is bizarre.

    I believe there is no limit to the number they can make, it's the number they can register/sell.

    Nice to see the forum back.

    One counter to your point is that more people fail at Horizontal cuts in Tameshigir than Kesagiri. The hand position for Kesagiri works to generate power.

    There is something severely wrong with either the source of your blades or the training method.
