    Specifically Nihonto, Steven. Chambers-Sensei wants us to train as close to reality as possible, which is why we also train on the side of a mountain, rain or shine. Today it was lots of shine, last week, exactly the opposite.

    We do put our Nihonto away when it starts to rain, I'll admit, as getting a polish every few months isn't exactly in our budgets.
