Bruce: Did you notice during the sword making video (at about 16 minutes) they were talking about the Yamato-den (school) and showing three dots in the shape of a triangle? They were on a variety of tools. Hmmmmm..

Yes, at 16:22 they even showed a close-up shot.  Were they describing the dots?

And yet, there are a couple of smiths that did use distinct marks.
