The tempered steel blade looks lack and knows why, acknowledging the skill of the forgemaster" qv. Enoeda Keinosuke.


Master Enoeda Sensei also said....


"The soul of Karate-do is peace and concern for all  mankind. It is my wish that people who practice karate-do should always keep these things in mind;- a modest heart, gentle attitude and peace for mankind. The spirit of "Karate ni sente nashi" is thus fulfilled.
