一良、おめでとうございます! Congratulations Kazuyoshi!

June 30, 2007

I’d like to congratulate my friend Kazuyoshi for winning first place in this year’s sword making competition. This is a big deal in the sword making world. While there are different categories where one can win a first prize, the one that he won is one of the most prestigious as it’s the “All Japan president’s award”. Interestingly, when I was visiting in the spring, I was there when he first received the blade. He was extremely nervous about it and had his doubts but it was his Oyakata (teacher) who figured that it was a first place blade. Shows that experience does count for something.

Congratulations Kazu!

一良、おめでとうございます!今年、一良は全日本刀匠会会長賞の特賞をもらいました。面白い事は僕の訪問の時カズがあの刃をどきどきする。カズの親方は「いい太刀です。特賞をもらうと思います」と言いました。親方は経験が多いでしょう。

一良、本当におめでとうございます。
