Geisha's Blade sword quality

Paul:


You have been a great help to my sword-buying quests in the past, and I am hoping you might be so again with this latest adventure.

Several years ago I purchased a Connor Macleod Highlander katana from Global Gear based on your review of how marvelous a cutter that sword was. Your review was spot on. But there are a few discrepancies between this sword and the sword shown in the original Highlander films.

United Cutlery did produce a closer-to-film rendition of the Macleod katana, but this was not a live blade, and this sword is long discontinued.

In my searching, I came upon Geisha's Blade, a forge out of the Philippines. GB is offering a closer-to-film version of the Macleod katana built on 1050 carbon steel.

I have included a link to GB's website listing for the Highlander katana, below:

I was wondering if you have any experience with Geisha's Blade swords, and whether you can tell me if these swords are worth buying, or nothing better than wall-hangers.

Any input or advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Your Canadian companion,

Kevin Bell

Great swords but..
by: Paul

These swords are actually designed by a respected SBG sword forum member, Alwin. The swords are not made locally but actually imported to the Philippines from Longquan, China..

While the swords are great and Alwin and very honest and cool guy, they are not able to be exported to North America and his business is aimed at the domestic Philippine market..

You may be able to work something out though, best to contact Aldwin directly and tell him Paul from SBG sent you and hopefully you guys can work something out (such as shipping directly from the forge).

Best,
- Paul
