Product Information & Size Chart

  • Tsuba Ume Take - T033

    This made in Japan Tsuba features a japanese apricot tree & bamboo branches.
    The fruit of the Japanese apricot tree, or Prunus mume, is used in juices, as a flavouring for alcohol, as a pickle and in sauces and is also used in traditional medicine. An Superstition says that eating the fruit for breakfast staves off misfortune. Plum blossoms are often mentioned in Japanese poetry as a symbol of spring. Plum blossom were prefered by the Japanese until the Heian period, in which the cherry blossom (Sakura) was preferred. It is considered as a charm against evil, and the tree is often planted in the northeast of the gardens, the direction from which evil is supposed to come.
    Bamboo is found all over in Japan and is frequently used in construction and handicrafts, which explains its omnipresence in all aspects of the Japanese culture. Because of its strong root, it's a symbol of prosperity. Simple and unadorned, the bamboo is also symbolic of purity and innocence, which is a concept found in many Japanese expressions such as "Take o watta youna hito" which literally means "a man like fresh-split bamboo" and refers to a man with a frank nature.
