Eines der drei #nihonto , die von Sagawa Sensei für seine deutschen Schüler ausgewählt wurden. Das Spinnennetz auf der Tsuba soll daran erinnern, dass sich das #iaido stets entwickeln und weiterverbreiten soll.

One of the three Blades, Sagawa Sensei chose for his German students. The spiderweb should symbolize the goal of spreading the art of Iai further and further.

When displaying a sword on #katanakake it's easy to remember the position by a few things. For #katana the thrust edge should be facing upwards in the same way it is facing upwards in the obi. (It's different with #tachi because it's hanging from the obi the other way round.)
.
2+3/7
The #tsuka is pointing to the left to prevent the sword from easily being drawn out of the #saya

It is said that displaying a sword with the tsuka to the right ist disrespectful and expresses mistrust towards the guest. I don't know about the amount of truth in it but why risk to insult someone. 😉

4+5/7
When displaying an unsheathed blade (e.g. for exhibition or if someone asks to see the fine craft of the steel) the saya goes on the lower position.

6/7
One way to secure the blade even more from being drawn is to place the #tsuba inside the rack

7/7
In the #dojo I place the sword in the same way as on a rack. To show there is only peaceful intention.

By the way, when displaying a #wakizashi or #tanto it goes on the upper shelf. 😉
