History and making of a Japanese sword

Came across this excellent doco from the "Beginning Japanology" series by NHK.

Keep an eye out in the first 10 mins for footage of iaido from the annual 8th dan Taikai in Hakone. Simply awesome. The kata they are demonstrating is, I think, from the Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu.
