Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 29 by chioky Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 29 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. It is the part of the katana which has most of design. 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: Raika: Oh yeah we finnaly arrive to captain amagai's tsuba and what a failure the filler has expected to been. Captain Amagai is the new captain of the third division and man does he do a terrible job, must be because of his evil intentions. Did I spoiler? meh the filler anime for bleach is bad anyway. You even get to see his bankai, well whats most of it anyway nothing special. However his redeeming factor is that he has a cool looking tsuba for his zanpakuto. He actually also uses a second zanpakuto like a tuning fork. I forgot to mention that Raika is actually a elemental zanpakuto of the attribute fire, yammato watch out.

:bulletblue: Reppu: Now this is kifune's zanpakuto. Firstly he sure does resemble a number 8th seat espada, the anime studio must be reusing character designs, he is basically sazayel but with different shaped glasses. Now onto his zanpakuto, it is a beyblade. Yep his zanpakuto releases into a giant toy beyblade that can fly in the air. Kifune's release command should be"LET IT RIP!!! REPPU!!" the only special ability of his beyblade zanpakuto is that it spins faster and moves faster, that is about it. The fight with him against kira was painfull to watch. All the battle was is kira gradually making kifune's beyblade heavier until it stopped spinning. Oh yeah beyblade is awesome reppu is not.

: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.

Sigh, it would have been a whole lot better if he'd of died saving soul society, and hikifune's death was so anticlimactic.....

Either way i may end up using amagai's one day, i've started work on my first swords, you were my inspiration ^^ I'm working on Pantera and Shinso.....with a little help from your tsubasa designs ^^'

LOL to the Beyblade remark. xD Yeah, first thought when I saw Kifune... "This guy... looks oddly familiar..." xD

Amagai's an evil traitor too? Maaaan, Soul Society needs to be more careful when pickin out captains... First Gin, Aizen, and Tousen, and now Amagai and Kifune too? Geeeez...

Awesome job on all the tsuba designs by the way. :D -applauds-

Kifune? he is a szyael look alike using a beyblade zanpakuto how original 8D

Amagai and kifune are evil yes they are, they can never be good guys in fillers XD

Ive almost reached 30 deviations of these woot XD

and kifune is such a rip-off of szayel!

BUT...you did awesome! to get them really accurate, well done!

lol amagai's bankai is too small for a captain of his calibre XD

kifune is a szayel rip off indeed hes 100x weaker then him O.O

there so easy to draw you wait for the really accurate stuff soon XD

Heh Bleach filler arcs are ok (the Bount was good but to long Ashido was awesome.) it's jsut a shame that Reppu's user was an ass that was better suited to Dragon Ball. With Amagai being good until he revealed that he was yet another evil traitor. As usual go you and your Tsuba's wonder if anyone will cosplay him?

:iconchioky:
chioky Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2008  Student Artisan Crafter
I will admit some bleach filler episodes are okey but the arcs overall are pretty bad, when you watch one after the other XD. Reppu's user was a fodder villian number 101#. And amagai was yet another evil dude who tried to kill yamammato O.O not happening dude XD I am pretty sure somebody will cosplay him in the future ^^

I didn't like the fact that he was yet another manipulative "I'm a nice guy. Oops no I'm not". He's like Aizens crappy clone or something.

It was funny, my boyfriend and I were watching the episodes and at one point when his tsuba was in clear view and we both at the same time said, "I can't wait till he [meaning you] draws that tsuba!" haha. I've become a lot more aware of tsuba designs in different animes and shows I've watched too. It's a good thing, I'm having fun with it, thank you for all your efforts!

My boyfriend and I also grouped together, so my Gamazu looks a hundred times better and he also made Fornicaras using small bouncy-balls, haha ^_^.

Its funny that all these tsuba designs I draw is a pretty simple thing. However people whenever they need help with the tsuba's all the information about them is already here XD Drawing so many my eyes now follow the movement of tsuba's very carefully and when there in full view I draw them.

And indeed I have already started branching out into different animes ^^

And may your cosplay be forever wonderfull as a pair ^^

I'll upload pictures eventually of those swords. He made a sheath for mine too. We've come to the conclusion that I make better Tsubas and he does better with the actual sword (while he bases what he does on your tutorials, he uses power tools). The entire group is doing Ishida, Szayel, Neliel, and Mayuri. Derek (aforementioned boyfriend, who is cosplaying Mayuri) keeps hoping there will be a really clear shot of Mayuri's tsuba sealed (like when he is hanging it from his belt), but so far it's been hard to tell exactly what it looks like. He doesn't want to walk around with the ugly baby, haha. ^_^

He does better at the actual swords using power tools? im not suprised if you know how to use the tools and know how to make the swords they are going to end up good lol

though its so nice your making the tsuba's thats one of my favoruite parts of swordmaking XD

mayuri's unreleases tsuba? its basically a straight rectangle handle with one side longer then the other, however it is bent down. Its details are bolt like circles and bandages. I cant draw it becuase its 3D though T.T

Yeah, I know it's a difficult one. He mentioned something about having to glue nails to it O.o I'm not entirely sure, he's probably going to do that himself while I work on the headdress for it, which will be "fun" enough ^^; haha
