Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 5 by chioky Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 5 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: Pantera: This is an easy guard to make trust me it took me only 2 hours XD When I was trying to draw this out using only memory it was suprisingly difficult to get a clear image, I had to remembed it was a crooked "S" I would consider this a begginer level guard design.

:bulletblue: Ulquiorra Schiffer's Tsuba: Holy Crap!! this was hard to draw O.O. The hardest part was actually getting a good picture of the guard to get reference becuase hes never once used the damn sword XD. After alot of searching I only found a very small but full view of the guard in several seconds of the anime. Since there is no outer rim for this guard I say its medium level to cut out.

: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.
