The Manga Tsuba Designs: Pt 5 by chioky The Manga Tsuba Designs: Pt 5 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: High School of the Dead - Murata-To: Saeko Busujima is a high school senior and president of the school's kendo club, she is extremely skilled with a bokken and close combat. She originally had her own sword a simple shirasaya to fight against the zombies. However in chapter 12 Saya Takagi's father the politician decides to give her his most cherished sword to fight with. It's full name is Kissaki Moroha Kogarasu zukuri.

:bulletblue: My-Hime - Miroku: Mikoto's Element is Miroku, a black claymore or two-handed sword. She is able to strike with great force, open portals of dark energy and has cleaved a ferry clean in half. Mikoto is often seen dragging Miroku's tip along the ground while wielding it, creating showers of sparks in the process. She is also able to summon Miroku when physically separated from the sword. Also In the manga, Miroku is also capable is using an attack that can split the ground.

: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.

Small correction: In HoTD, Saeko only fights with a regular old bokuto before receiving the Murata-To from Takagi, not a shirasaya.

I only noticed it because I have the entire anime series on my hard drive and one of the minute differences you notice between it and the manga is her bokken: in the original manga, she loses it right before she enters the Takagi mansion while fighting zombies, but because of a little shuffling, her mini-arc with Takashi happens BEFORE they get to the mansion in the anime, so she holds onto it a little longer and ends up trading it in for an offering sword when they hide in a temple (rather than using the Murata-To). That's about the only reason her use of a bokken sticks in my mind.

ohh sorry :D, it mean's 'real sword', i have a practical use katana that need's some customisation's, it's on my profile if you wish to take a look just wanted to know if the tsuba you make could be used to make a metal version that would fit the blade's apple seed (the shape from the edge of the blade to the back of it, it's kind of like an apple if you look at it from the tip to the tang)

Mikoto Minagi, I believe is the name of the girl. I have nothing to go on, or at least not much so just guessed based off the sword she was holding.

Hope it helps. :heart:
