Geisha’s Blade 芸者の刃 was formed by Jaimee L. and Aldwin P., who both have a love for Japanese tradition, culture, and arts. We started selling online last 2005 on eBay Philippines, and on 2008 on Sulit.com.ph (now OLX.ph) and Multiply.com.

Back then, we only had a handful of swords available and most of them were from our personal collection. Our collections have all been sold and the number of buyer inquiries has grown. What started out as a hobby has now become a business endeavor. In 2008, Geisha’s Blade 芸者の刃 was officially born.

Jaimee L. studied Japanese linguistics and is a graduate of Interior Design in UP Diliman. She also collects vintage kimonos and getas from Japan.
