Regardless of the steel type, our swords weigh more or less 1kg. The weight depends on the material of the fittings, length, width, and thickness of the blade. The type of steel isn’t really a factor in regards to the weight as most of our swords have more or less the same specs.
For customers who want to have peace of mind when ordering from us, we’re happy to announce that our Cash On Delivery (COD) option is now available nationwide!
It’s that time of year again where Geisha’s Blade will be very busy for 3 straight days. This would be our 3rd year to join History Con and it will be held from August 10-12, 2018 at the World Trade Center, Pasay City.
No need to go to Japan to wear full suit of Japanese armor, you can wear one of our armors at the event. So get your tickets now and see you there! http://www.historyasia.com/historycon/ticket-sales
Kakizome translates to “first writing”, which is a Japanese term for the first calligraphy written at the beginning of the year.
Kakizome Scroll translation:
“Pearl and Jade, together creates elegance
And so too can Drawings and Books fill a space”
Last May 2015, we went to Japan for the purpose of furthering my martial arts training, but because my sensei was still in a different country holding a seminar, we stayed in Kyoto first to wait until he returned to Tokyo in June.
Here’s something else to look forward to at Geisha’s Blade, restock of our tanto and a new model.
From top to bottom: Unokubi Zukuri Tanto, Momiji Tanto, Osoraku Zukuri Tanto
The Unokubi Zukuri Tanto and Momiji Tanto are not new. We started selling them last 2010 but haven’t restocked them for quite a while. But because of popular demand, we decided to bring them back in again.
It’s been a very long time since we stocked up on some of our wakizashi, but because of popular demand, we decided to bring them back in.
Here’s a sneak peek of our wakizashi (from top to bottom):
Shirasaya Wakizashi 1050 Series
Kuro Suzaku Wakizashi 1050 Folded Series
Kuro Setsuhen Wakizashi 1050 Series
Kumokiri Wakizashi 1060 Series
Now that we already have new samurai armors in stock (we’re just finishing taking photos and upload them on our website), we’d like to announce to you that Geisha’s Blade 芸者の刃 is now the authorized dealer of authentic reproduction Japanese armors by Iron Mountain Armory (Fenglinhanjia) in the Philippines.

There are many different opinions on what is and is not a true daisho as worn by the samurai of feudal Japan. Wearing two swords of different lengths was a sign for anyone to see that the owner of the two swords was in fact a samurai, as only samurai were allowed to wear a daisho.
We really don’t recommend cutting dry bamboo because it’s very hard and will damage the blade. We’ve done this before without damaging the blade, but we weren’t able to record it on video. We decided to do it again (so you don’t have to) to show what our swords are capable of.
