: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: H. Toki no Naka de Hachiyo Sho - Yorihisa's Katana: Yorihisa is a descendant of a proud samurai line, who has trained with a sword for as long as he can remember. Yorihisa's position in the Hachiyou is "Ten no Seiryuu" or Seiryuu of Heaven, and his battle partner in this respect is Morimura Tenma. Yorihisa's Hachiyou power seem to manifest mostly as wind power using his katana, though it is at its strongest when he and Tenma combine their power together in order to fight.

:bulletblue: Zero no Tsukaima - Gandalfr: As a Gandalfr, Saito has the ability to use any object that was made with the intent of being used as a weapon at an extremely high level of skill. He can only use items specifically crafted for "the purpose of weapons" was revealed by Derflinger after a failed attempt to use an ornamental sword. It has not been made clear whether Gandalfr powers could be used in conjunction with purely magical weaponry such as a wand or a staff. He is said to be the left hand of god.

: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

too bad it does not reflect off from the tsuba
Blaze-Typhoon Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2009
Huh? what? The sword should be just as nice as the tsuba if not better, shouldn't it?

Zero no Tsukaima is the funniest anime I've ever seen. Saito is obviously a pervert, and Louise is completely a reincarnation of Hitler :D

It IS a wacky anime. You haven't watch it? How come you know the sword then???
