To Leave One’s Mark
On repudiated Japanese swords, crafted by expertise, experience and know-how, the name of the wordsmith who made it is deeply engraved. The engravement shows that the sword was crafted by the master whose name is shown and the name is passed down from generation to generation forever. Our work should be equally as good a quality as a sword made by a reputed master. When each one of us realizes, as a member of an organization, his own role and responsibility and sets out on the task with a definite goal and objective, he has made the first step to inscribe his signature on his/her job. It is very important to complete a job that you can say to others with pride and confidence, “This is a job I have done by myself.” Especially it is important for each Giken member that he/she stands on own and proudly proclaims as such.
