If Aldwin is in this photo, who’s wearing his yoroi? Can you guess who this mystery man is? Clue: check the footwear 😄
One of our favorite clips during our cutting party last March 22, 2016
Chito Miranda of Parokya ni Edgar using our Kirishitan Katana 2nd Gen with Ryan Eigenmann fangirling in the background
Please note that this was Chito’s first time cutting with a katana. Before our cutting session, we taught him how how to properly handle the sword, proper form, strikes, footwork, etc., but due to too much excitement, he forgot about it. So please, forgive his form.
Nice cuts by Ryu Lim, with his new Geisha’s Blade 芸者の刃 sword, the “Kaedama Ryu Katana”.
First time cutting with our Highlander Katana against harder targets to test if its ABS plastic handle would hold up. We’re glad that it did as this sword was very fun to cut with. The blade is light, but feels very solid (since there’s no bohi on the blade). However, the handle feels a bit awkward since it’s thicker than our other swords with traditional handles.
Here are the swords we used during our cutting party.

Here’s a nice photo of Ryu Lim wearing Aldwin’s samurai armor. It looks like he’s on a battlefield who just finished slaughtering his enemies.
