Product Description

Kuro Setsuhen Katana v2

Kuro Setsuhen (Black Snowflake) – Because no two snowflake have ever been found to be alike, they represent individuality, and their perfect geometric forms represent perfection. The snowflake is a very simple example of self-assembly. There is no blueprint or genetic code that guides the growth of a snowflake, yet marvelously complex structures appear, quite literally out of thin air. And this is what you can see on the Kuro Setsuhen katana.

The Kuro Setsuhen Katana is a perfect companion for the Kuro Setsuhen Wakizashi making them a daisho.

    I bought 11 swords in one Meet-Up Deal at the Dojo of Geisha’s Blade proprietor. That’s how much I trust this vendor. I got four katanas of Roronoa Zoro of One Piece (complete set), two Bleach Zanpakutos (Ichigo & Rukia), two Setsuhens (white Snowflake & black Snowflake), and three Shirasayas (Katana, Wakizashi, & Tanto) from sister company “Sword Like Objects”. Then I made my very own katana kake (sword rack) to hold & display all 11 swords. The 3 on top are the plain wood-colored Machine-Made “sword-like objects”. Just directly below them are the 2 Hand-Forged white & black “real swords”. Because of the contrast above & below, you can compare their differences (heaviness of blade, presence/absence of mekugi, dull/sharp blade, full tang, etc.). Further below them are the Anime/Manga Swords (white & black of Bleach followed by white & black of One-Piece). It’s nice to see them all in one rack.

    I will never get tired of buying from “the one & only” On-Line Philippine Samurai Sword store – Geisha’s Blade. I have said it before and I will say it again – my reasons for being a happy customer are superior service and high quality products, not to mention excellent information sharing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED VENDOR!

    From the minute it was pulled out from the packaging, it is definitely worth waiting to come home. from koshira to kojiri is simply beautiful,, there is one thing i notice… it is all alone to its new home, but it won’t be long… it will soon be join by the other gorgeous swords. Thank you geisha’s blade….

    The looks and even the feel that i got in cutting water filled bottles is very worthy for its price. The blade is sharp that i didn’t expect the effortlessness in performing the cut, the balance of the blade is also good which i felt in doing a double cut on the water filled bottle along with the pleasing quick swooshing sound in performing the cut.

    This is the first sword I have ever purchased. I am very happy with the appearance and the structure of this blade. It is simple and yet stunning at the same time.

    Also, the person who is responsible in running Geisha’s Blade is quite helpful and easy to deal with. No hassle. He even provided some tips on how to properly take care of my sword.

    I am looking forward to buying more swords real soon.

    This Kuro Setsuhen Katana was my first live katana. I owned a Japan-made Daisho Iaito bought 1993. There is a big difference in emotion and respect between holding a live katana and a unsharpened iaito eventhough they are of similar size and weight.,
    I initially ordered online the Musashi Iaito Katana from the Geisha’s Blade available choices and schedule a pickup at their warehouse. Aldwin was very friendly and helpful, after having check the Musashi Iaito and payment, Aldwin was kind enough to bring out 3 more katanas for my viewing. after checking and holding all of it., i couldnt help but ask for upgrade to the Kuro Setsuhen ( this option was originally listed as stockout online) it was indeed fate Aldwin set this unit aside (as if destined for me). This Kuro Setsuhen was really my first choice when looking over the selection! Love the classic design, full size and heavy weight! Excellent craftmanship, durable, and available locally, Geisha’s Blade provide a great service for local sword enthusiasts ! another plus – it was managed by sword lovers who love and know their products by heart!
