    I initially bought the Kuro Shirasaya (plain black) Katana. After a few weeks, it seemed lonely so I additionally bought the Kuro Shirasaya (plain black) Wakizashi to make it a Daisho (paired long & short sword). After a month, they seemed incomplete so I bought again the Aikuchi (black with kurikata) Tanto. Of course, I had to display them so I bought the 3-Tiered Katana Kake (all black Sword Rack). After several months, I realized I was still missing 2 other types/sizes (blade lengths) of katanas so I bought the Samurai X Aoshi Shinomori Katana Anime Series (all black Double Kodachi that looks like a Nodachi) including the Shogun Vertical Sword Stand (all black). After a year, they are now all displayed in front of my Yoroi (all black Japanese Armor) that I recently got. ALL OF THESE I bought from “the one & only” On-Line Philippine Samurai Sword store. Obviously, I’m a very happy customer of Geisha’s Blade because of their superior service and high quality products, not to mention excellent information sharing. Do I need to state that I will buy again in the future?!?!?

    Very nice blade for its reflection that is clear enough to see yourself on its blade, first 1060 Tanto in Geisha’s Blade, has kurikata (knob) attached to its saya that is why I got interested to it (so I can put it on my belt) and bought not just 1 but 2 because I really like to pose holding two katana/tanto.
