Geisha's Blade sword quality

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!
