Product Information & Size Chart
Rigid Leather Tsuba for Bokken and Shoto
Material: cow leather
Tsubadome (rubber ring) optional (white or brown).
Size: ~7.6 cm x ~7 mm
Thick leather Tsuba, very solid. A little smaller than its sister product, the round leather Tsuba. Because leather is a "living" material, each Tsuba is unique, specially in its color. The emphasis is not placed on its appearance but this kind of Tsuba is an excellent model to effectively protect your hands!
It will fit on all standard and high-end bokken, with or without groove, and on chuto (short bokken) and shoto (wakizashi), but might require a little filing depending on the exact shape of the blade (particularly at the mine). Please make sure you select the correct size as the hole is slightly smaller for Shoto size. The M (Shoto/Chuto) size can still be recut for a Bokken, but a Bokken Tsuba will be too large for a Shoto.
In addition, note that this Tsuba cannot be fitted on a thin Bokken (Yagyu, Yagyu Shinkage, Niten Ichi Ryu, etc.)
Please note that the Tsuba is shipped in its original shape. If you would like the Tsuba to be fitted with a particular weapon in your order, please specify it via the comment box of the shopping cart page. We will only fit the Tsuba on Standard and Deluxe models, not on Koryu Bokken.
