Hello, I was wondering what the etiquette is for purchasing items to be used in the dojo, such as iaito or hakama. I have the opportunity to purchase an iaito cheaper than the ones my sensei want me to get, as well as it being better. I feel like this is often the case and I don't know if he is unaware that I know what the msrp is on many things or if he just doesn't know the proper prices himself. So would it be improper etiquette to purchase my own goods when necessary (because I can get them cheaper), or should I support my dojo by getting the items he has offered? The tuition is enough I feel like I need a break from the monetary drainage.
