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. 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.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

Chioky you are amazing sir. Perfect execution in your tutorials. Thanks for this. I personally used your tutorial, and I had to go back for the gaurd/tsuba but now that this is on here. I seriously recommend this being a sticky

This is truely amazing. This is a great help for anyone who wants to make accurate swords for Bleach cosplaying!

I did a CTRL+F and I couldn't find Wonderweiss, when his sword is more visable, can you make a drawing for it? My friend wants to be an accurate Wonderweiss, down to the sword too.

The funny thing is we have never once seen a shot of wonderweiss's zanpakuto properly, trust me I have looked and all we see is his guard (sideways) and I need to atleast draw the face of it zanpakuto to make it atleast some credible source of correct imitation of the sword

Yeah, I couldn't find any of it other than being on his back. I have a feeling that he'll use it soon, so that'll at least be one image in the future.

I know I mentioned this on Devianart, but for those who don't bother to read the comments, I'll say it again.

Yumichika's tsuba looks a bit differently to how Chiok made it. In episode 119 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLXw_CAJjyE&feature=related), we do get a good close-up look, at 2:09.

For all you Yumichika-cosplayers out there ;)

Wow, I already found the templates and your awesome swords on deviantart *-*. They helped me a great deal thrice. First when I worked at Itegumo for myself and at Yachiru's Zanpakutou for my sis although I just cheated and used usual bokkens as a base. And then again when I needed a reference for Hisagomaru.
