Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 31 by chioky Zanpakuto Tsuba Designs: Pt 31 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: Del Toro: Now when you expect an arrancar to get killed by a person like renji the noob killed you know that battle is going to be over quickly. It is going to be over so quickly that Kubo will not even bother to give him a half decent looking tsuba design. Notice how this tsuba design is simply a straighter but more crapier version of Rose's. I enjoy how it took renji just one shot to kill Ilfort Grantz so the battle could end quicker. Hell you can forget about D Roy easily one of the coolest privaron espada yet he died far too quickly to ever see his tsuba. Also he is the effeminate older brother of Szayel Aporro Grantz, hmm figures.

:bulletblue: Volcanica: Let me say now, that Edorad Leones vs Ikkaku Madarame was easily one of the best battles in the entire anime. Well when Ikkaku went bankai the next 5 minutes was a pure top quality fight scene. Edorad is quite a pridefull arrancar why he even only uses his arms to block ikkaku's attacks when ikkaku did not even release. However when ikkaku did release his shikai he then had to parry the blows. And then when ikkaku went bankai he tried to parry the attacks again with his arms. I hope he learns one day that you do not just block ikkaku's attacks unarmed. In the end his body looked alot like mayuri when ishida shot an arrow through him.

: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.

heh I could imagine how that went down after Grantz died and went...wherever the dead go when they die

"How did you die?"

"The noob killed me"

Rengi the noob. I wonder if that's his official title.

Your work, as always, is awesome, and I bet a lot of people are glad you make them. I just have one thing to say though, isn't del toro more detailed in the manga. In the chapter he releases it (207), I thought I saw some markings on it. Just thought I should tell you.

P.S. Thanks to you I was able to make the tsuba for the Kensei's sword, which I am in the middle of making.

Volancia's tsuba is a bit angular, don't you think. I think it should be smoother or firer to match the name...

Thanks~ It's from the opening page of Bleach volume 12. It's the translation from Japanese, so the English version by Viz might be a little different.
