This has really depressed me and I have considered stop collecting Japanese swords. He passed away just before my birthday and I learned about it on my birthday. My last interaction with Kunio-sensei was in January of this year when I participated in kantei session at the regular club meeting. I scored my first Atari (当) and I was very happy and proud of my work. I knew the answer because I once had a tanto that a previous owner had attributed to Atawaguchi-Yoshimitsu. Here is also a photo of the middle Muromachi Period, Yakuōji Yoshimitsu Tanto (薬王寺吉光短刀) that lead me to do the research necessary to get the atari score at kantei. Little did I know this would be my last interaction with him. I feel very sad. I am sure people here will likely make fun of my post and its typos, but life is a very precious thing and I could careless of the peanut gallery opinion of me.

That is a nice video and testimony to Kunio sensei's contribution to NYC nihonto society at large. He was a kind soul and helpful artist.

My last visit with him was March 31, 2019 at the Met in NYC as, I believe, this video was recorded.
