The Pass Rate For 62Th Annual Juyo Examination Nov. 8, 2016

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys I thought some of you may find this interesting, ;-)

This year 888 blades were submitted to the Examination but only 149 blades were able to pass. Only 14 of the blades that passed were made after the Shinto Era.

Not easy, but that's how it should be :)

How is TH a big jump now?


It seems as easy as it ever was provided the new age/ubu/signed requirements are met unless there's been a change in quality level that I haven't noticed?


If there were a change then that would cause problems in a similar fashion to judging Juyo from the late 70's.

Sorry James but it has changed for a few years now, it is like juyo, meaning it is competition. Only the best of hozon shall pass TH whatever the written criteria because there are subjective criteria which must be taken into account. Furthermore, there is a commercial interest in having an intermediate level more difficult to obtain....
