Product Description

Setsuhen Snowflake Katana v2

Setsuhen (Snowflake) – Because no two snowflakes 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 Setsuhen Katana.

The Setsuhen Katana is a perfect partner for our Setsuhen Wakizashi making them a daisho (paired set).

The video below shows the difference in flexibility between the 1st Generation and 2nd Generation. The 2nd Gen is more flexible like a 1060 blade.

More subtle wire brushed hamon which looks like a real hamon.

    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!
