The buddhist period of mourning for my sensei has been over for a long time now. What I am wondering, is whether or not my sensei's Iaito, not shinken, has to be retained in it's sword bag while on the stand, or if it can be taken out and put on display in the stand. The wakizashi and tanto beneath it aren't covered up either.

Does it matter? Personal choice?

Me, I'd rather see it out. It's a dojo, ya know?

Has your Sensei's Iaito been placed in the bag for the purpose of mourning? If so and the mourning phase is over. Honor him buy displaying his Iaito. Just a personal oppinion.

I would agree, but would implore you to seek any of his relatives first and ask permission.
