The Bamboo Tsuba from Hanwei has a traditional Japanese design and is made of blackened iron with an antiqued finish.
The tsuba separates the handle from the blade and ensures that your hands do not slide over the blade during a confrontation. The tsuba also provides protection against an attack and the weight influences the point of balance of the katana.
The tsuba has a great influence on the decorative whole of the samurai sword and in earlier times it was a status symbol.
With the replacement of a tsuba it is possible to make your katana more personal.
This tsuba by hanwei shows bamboo, an authentic and often occurring theme.
