Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 12 by chioky Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 12 by chioky
:star: The Zanpakuto 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.The tsuba is what makes the zanpakuto a one of a kind. 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: Suzumebachi: Now Soifon does have a tsuba as her unreleased zanpakuto. However this tsuba is actually a 3D oval shaped tsuba. If that wasnt difficult enough the details on the tsuba actually merge back into the tsuba. This tsuba is automatically almost as difficult to make as kenpachi's becuase it is a complex 3D structure. It also isnt that big but its reasonable if your going to wear it on your back.

:bulletblue: Gegetsuburi: The guy who uses this zanpakuto is the vice captain of Soi fon you know the big guy thats always seen eating? he was the first vice captain to get thrashed by ichigo using his fists alone, yeah that was fun to watch. Anyway why did I ramble onlike that? becuase his tsuba is so plain it hurts I mean you just cut it out and cut the details out of balsa wood and stick it on. Were never gonna see him use his zanpakuto again perhaps but it is still a zanpakuto with a shown tsuba.

: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.

Now only if I could find someone to make a wooden replica of Gegetsuburi. Other than that, mighty nice job.

I'm guessing that the one on the left is soifon's and the one on the right is her lieutenants? Yeah, I'm having a stupid moment.

Just because i'm ocd when it comes to swords, i think it should be noted that the *flat* side of Omaeda's tsuba is the forward side, while the narrower side faces backwards. [link]

I think a lot of people would assume it's the other way around.

Cool!Thanks for the design of Suzumebachi unreleased, I'm interested in making Soi Fong's sword in unreleased form! I just finished the release form that it's in my gallery (the photo is a little bad but well T.T) and it'll be cool having this also. *-* Umm... the problem it's the oval form, yeah. Thanks for the design!And the other is her lieutenant?I really didn't have time to see his, as Ichigo kick his ass so easily XD ^-^ See you!

her tsuba is actually a complex 3D oval shape, which would be challenging to make no doubt, though very easy to draw hehe. Yes the other one is the lieutenants, tsuba which is as easy to draw, as it is to defeat him in battle XD

dunno if anyone mentioned this (or if you already knew) but iirc in the Manga her Tsuba was a 2d design. Dunno why they made it 3d in the anime, from what i remember it looked much better in the manga. (though I'd hafta re-read chapters to confirm this.)

Sorry I meant a 2D, 2 dimentional design...

In the Manga it was a normal Tsuba (at least I remember it being when she fought Soi Fon, coz I remember reading it and thinking "hey her Tsuba is different) ut i'd hafta re-read to check) but in the Anime they turned it into that 3D thing... which I don't like the design of.

So you mean Soifon's tsuba is like a a big straight peanut, with a whole in the middle? (sorry, I'm a bit like Orihime when things come to food shape ^^)

watching ichigo thrash 3 vice captains with fist alone was amazing..you shouldn't apologise for rambling, you do really well to keep the descriptions short but include loads of detail thats helpful

^^ more excellent work, your project it really coming on well to get the designs of all the tsuba
