The Manga Tsuba Designs: Pt 20 by chioky The Manga Tsuba Designs: Pt 20 by chioky
:star: The Manga Tsuba Index

The purpose of these drawings is to help swordmakers and propmakers. When it comes to making katana's or zanpakuto's most of the time the tsuba is the most unique part of the sword. It is the part of the katana which has most of design. So I drew up these closely detailed and accurate measurements of these tsuba's. With these tsuba's they act as a reference when your going to attempt to make the sword. If you use a scene from a anime or manga to make use reference for your tsuba, it might be flawed. So I have saved you the trouble and drawn them all out clearly, with measurements so you can print and cut them out.

:bulletblue: Sword of the Stranger - Nanashi's Katana: A ronin haunted by his terrible past, he has sworn to keep his sword sheathed. However, upon meeting Kotaro he finds himself re-evaluating his life. While traveling with the young Kotaro, Nanashi finds himself acting as a bodyguard for the boy. This in turn leads to his prolonged struggle against the Ming soldiers, particularly Luo-Lang.

:bulletblue: Sword of the Stranger - Luo Lang's Katana: Acting as the second in command in the Ming's group, Luo-Lang stands out as the only Caucasian in the group. He is driven by a thirst for greater power: Luo-Lang craves finding an equally strong enemy to fight so he may improve his skills. Meeting Nanashi is a dream come true for him.

:bulletblue: Important Notes:

. ALL these guards slide into swords with a thicnkess of 5 mm and 30 mm long, there are some exceptions.
.The parrallel lines are the rims of the guards that you cut out of balsa wood and glue onto the main guard.
.Download the full version, then copy and paste it, print it off then cut it out with scissors.
.Once it the paper tsuba is cut out, then draw around it with a pencil on the wood, then cut it out to finish.
