Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 26 by chioky Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 26 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: Hisagomaru: Yes it is the zanpakuto of our favoruite comic relief character Hanataro. Now first things in the entire Bleach Anime so far there are only 2 frames that show his tsuba clearly. They were both in the shinigimi golden cup after the episodes when Kon took over Hanataro's body. While Hanataro is getting his block knocked off by the 11th division he is seen waving his sword Hisagomaru side to side. When the sword stops and swings to the other side is when you pause the video. Now in the two frames both tsuba's actually have slightly different details. You see those circles in the center? in one frame their joined in the other there not, troublesome.

:bulletblue: Tsunzakigarasu: Now try and remember who this zanpakuto belongs to? go on try and think hard... trust me most people will not get who it is. You saw the shinigimi when ichigo and friends had successfully punched through the top of soul society in that reitsu cannon ball. Still having trouble? well its when orihime was about to be attacked by a shinigimi on the roof top. Still dont remember? well its when ishida jumps in and saves her and for a few seconds is the only cannon ishida x orihime in the anime. Yes it is that big guy who gets owned by ishida who has that zanpakuto that splits into blades which is a thousand times more fail than senbonzakura.

: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.

A pal of mine is going to use your design for Ulquiorra's blade, that and how to make a sword since i pointed her in that direction!

Nice job on these too man!! Tsunzakigarasu from the manga had a look of phalicness when i first saw it, which made me shudder a little.

i kinda hope you make hanataros shikai, akeiro hisagamaru(the mini zanpakuto ~f-flourite was talking about).Its really cool ,it absorbs damage and then can realese it with enough force to kill a low level menos grande. You probrboly already know that though( i like the reading bleach wiki). hanataro is one of my favorite characters probrobly because hes so weak but, he has alot of heart and i always like the comic relief characters too .I also like that his name pretty much says that hes a nobody.

i also recognized jidanbos brothers zanpakto name right of the bat mostly because i remembered that it has crow in the name(crow=garasu)

and yes i do tend to babble and talk alot especially if im a fan of it i am a shamless nerd lol

Actually, in the "official" design of Hisagomaru, those "circles" on the tsuba are separated. And they're not really circles, but a more "drop-like" shape.
I hope this was helpful. ^^;

actually, those circles were supposed to appear tied together, so they look like gourds(hence the zanpakuto's name: Hisagomaru, the Gourd of Purity)

And the big guy's one looks like if you're not careful, it could snap in the middle!
Great job on the circles and curves for both.
