JSC-MW Meeting aligned with The Arts and Arms of the Samurai Sword Show Details:  

The focus of our meeting will be the history of the tanto and a focus on its role from the Meiji - Showa era. We will also be providing a display of Gendai tanto that will be one of, if not the largest display of its kind in the West.
