Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 21 by chioky Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 21 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: Trepadora: I have actually been leaving this zanpakuto sheet quite far back in the line, it was suppose to be number 16. Well anyway here we have luppi's zanpakuto tsuba which I might have made a bit too large, I couldnt get the shape right and enough space for the details inside so, resize to make it smaller lol. However luppi keeps the sword on his waist, which is odd that makes the sword the size of a wakazashi more then a katana. Damn the whole character concept of him is wierd O.O Yes you could say I was glad he was killed off.

:bulletblue: Ira: By fail the biggest failure of the espada's O.O that or maybe zommari, gosh such a hard choice. Anyway his zanpakuto tsuba is pretty plain seems to be a rectangle with protruding bricks on either side. I do wonder where yammy has disappeared off to, he has been away for almost over 60 chapters. I hope he hasnt tripped over a pebble somewhere and impaled himself on a broken branch, becuase then we dont have an espada that chad can beat on O.O I do not expect much of this character except a quick and timely death.

: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.
