: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: InuYasha - Sesshomaru's Sword: He is InuYasha's older half-brother. Like their father, he is the Lord of the Western Lands, although Sesshomaru maintains no permanent home. As a full-blooded Inu-yokai, he is a very powerful demon and nearly unequalled in raw power, but is unable to defeat Naraku in volume twenty-three of the manga. He has no interest in possessing even one shard of the Shikon Jewel to enhance his powers, since he is already supremely confident of his own strength.

:bulletblue: Zombie Loan - Chika Akatsuki's Katana: After surviving an accident with Shito six months prior to the start of the series, is a zombie. His attitude is rather lively and extroverted, but he is also short-tempered; he is often seen beating Michiru for her various failures. With Shito's right hand, which is actually Chika's original right hand, Chika has the ability to generate a katana possessing Shinigami abilities. With the katana, Chika is able to guide the souls of those zombies they defeat to Heaven.

:bulletblue: Important Notes:

. Most of these tsuba's fit into swords with a thicnkess of 5 mm and 30 mm long
.Download the full version, then copy and paste it, print it off then and then cut them out
.Once it is cut out, then draw around it with a pencil on the wood, then cut it out

Kinda shows how much their father cared about them, when he entrusted Sesshoumaru with Tenseiga, a sword that heals, so that he could protect his brother.
Too bad he, himself doesn't catch on that that was his father's intention xD
