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.
Tachikaze: Can you guess whoose this tsuba is? thats correct it is Kensei's tsuba which was shown in the bleach manga flash back "turn back the pendulem" His zanpakuto seems to cause a series of explosions which engulf the oppenent. Kensei himself is a good guy he was captain of the 9th division and made everybody wear biker jacket shinigimi uniforms with their names emblazened on their back. Did anybody think his hollow form was like a juggernaught? his fists equal death to all who end up on the other side of them.
Mashiro Kuna's: We have only seen her tsuba in one panel in the entire manga when her vaizard friends and her pinned down shikai hollow ichigo. There is not much to say about her as a vaizard, she wears colourfull designer jump suits which seemed to have come from old animes like speed racer. She also can hold her hollow form for the longest which does suit her character like a moth kind of. How she is able to hold it that long must be becuase the hollow inside her could not endure her annoying immature personality.
. 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.
