: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: The Story of Saiunkoku - Seiran Si's Sword: Seiran Si is a low-ranking army officer and the sole remaining retainer in the Hong household. Seiran was taken in thirteen years ago by Shoka Hong, but no one in the household knows about Seiran's past. He has made a vow to spend his life repaying the kindness of Shoka and Shurei Hong. He is a very skilled fighter and swordsman and is usually found following Shurei to guard her, even when she does not know it. Seiran is later revealed to be the previously exiled second elder brother of Ryuki, Seien.

:bulletblue: Code: Breaker - Shibuya's Katana: A odd guy who is always dressed in a Nyanmaru costume, stating he is Nyanmaru even though they pointed out to him there is a zipper on his back. He too is a "Rare Kind" and the only other one that Eden knows of. Apparently, not only can he nullify abilities throughcontact but also quite indestructible (being able to withstand being turned to ash by Ogami andHeike's whips of light). He also has the same ability as "That Guy", with the hilt of his katana having a Nyanmaru face.

: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
