Blademaster Worthiness

I have always been as stickler for who deserves what. I understand that to be a "blademaster" you have to either kill another blademaster in a fair sword to sword fight, or have a pannel of blademasters deem you worthy. However, I had a thought cross my mind while reading about Lan training Rand in Shienar in TGH. Lets say you are training to be a warder. You have not quite reached blademaster status. However, if an Aes Sedai bonds you and you suddenly increase in strength, speed, endurance, and all that other good stuff, and you suddenly are good enough to become a blademaster, are you considered a blademaster? I mean, you didn't earn the right to be a blademaster on your own. Your warder bond helped you step up to that level. But then again, you are good enough to be a blademaster now, so you should be. What are your thoughts? It just didn't seem right that someone can carry a heron marked blade when they didn't reach that level on their own. But, I guess a blademaster is a blademaster no matter how they attained it.

Well as far as I understand, in order to be a Blademaster you either have to kill another one in one on one combat or you gotta be deemed worthy by a few other Blademasters (forgot the exact number). Whether or not your increased physical prowess will play a role in the attending Blademaster "judges" is totally up to them I assume. To be honest, it seems mostly about skill and technique anyway, and less about strength and endurance. If you've trained for long enough to be skilled enough, you should have the endurance no matter what.

 

Edit - spelling
