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.
Itegumo: I was analysing pictures of isane's zanpakuto, there werent many might I add and I was trying to see if the 6 spikes were drawn directly into a center point. However when I successfully did that the tsuba design looked on proportional and so I changed the positions of the spikes around and now it looks alot cleaner. I was also contemplating if this was too big or too small but for me its okey. My opinion on the actual tsuba is that spikes look cool but are difficult to keep sharp.
Zabimaru: I dont know why I havent gotten round to drawing this one yet until now. Anyhow there were only a few clear pictures of the designs of this tsuba becuase the design varys. However the main difference is when the zanpakuto is released or unreleased becuase the center hole changed size proportionally to hold the blade. So the details were either consumed or pushed aside. So remember this tsuba is for if your going to make a released zabimaru aka the type that splits apart into a whip sword.
. 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.
