Brazil’s last samurai seeks successor

Brazil’s last samurai seeks successor

Edson Suemitsu, 61, lives in Curitiba, Brazil and makes his living producing katanas, a type of curved sword used by samurai in ancient feudal Japan. As the only full-time katana maker, the local press dubbed him ’the last samurai in Brazil’. Suemitsu says he does not plan to retire. He would love to have a successor, but admits that his craft may die with him.

There is many an American who would love to fill that position. There are few who would be appropriate in their responsibility.

Samurai is not a swordsmith, but a military nobility caste. They were abolished in 19th century, IIRC.
