Product Description

2nd Generation April 16, 2018 onwards: subtle wire brushed hamon, better blade flexibility. See videos below.

“Tsuru” (Crane) – For thousands of years the Japanese culture has treasured the crane as a symbol of honor and loyalty. The crane is believed to live for a thousand years. As a result, in the Japanese, Chinese and Korean culture, the crane represents good fortune and longevity. The Japanese also refer to the crane as the “bird of happiness”.

The crane symbol is used on many Japanese heraldic devices and is a theme in many famous works of art. It is a majestic bird which mates for life and is extremely loyal to its partner. The bird is strong, graceful and beautiful. Because of the great importance of the crane, the Japanese people feel that a person who folds 1,000 paper cranes will be granted his or her greatest wish.

    Well made good looking and a budget price katana I recommend this 1045 series katana for those who want to buy there’s no regret buying here in geishas blade ???

  2. Vic Guinto (verified owner)

    It looks beautifully nice, well made, good curve and balance. Among the 1045 available its got an iron tsuba. It draws smoothly from the saya. Makes me feel buying another from geishas blade, Most probably a 1060.

  3. Ricky Venzon (verified owner)

    This is my first Katana. And I has so happy about the quality and beauty of my Tsuru Katana. The blade is very sharp and the Saya finishing is so smooth. I can’t hardly wait to try cutting bamboo. Surely I will buy few more to start my collection. I’m happy that I found your website.
