Minosaka Seppa - Brass or Bronze
The Seppa are two thin plates that are put on both sides of the Tsuba to tighten and adjust the fitting.
Made from brass or bronze and available also silver and gold plated to give the sword an exquisite touch. All models fit standard swords, Shinken and Iaito, and the large model slightly protrudes the Tsuka and is visible. All Seppa are made by the Minosaka workshop in Japan. Each piece is hand crafted and therefore unique, featuring slight variations in shade and pattern.
