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.
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.
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.
. 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.
