Tameshigiri on YouTube

This is an experiment with embedding a YouTube video on my blog, so have patience and bear with me.

This is me doing tameshigiri, straw mat cutting with a samurai sword.

The mat was bought at a garage sale, the sword is a Masahiro cheap katana bought at eBay for less than the price of the shipping.

It occured to me after the embarassment of knocking the mat off the stand that I might have tied the base tight.

At any rate, see here:
